Big Switch Off

Big Switch Off

Each year, Huntsman Textile Effects associates around the world support the Earth Hour Initiative by switching off non-essential lights in an hour-long, company-wide Big Switch Off.

More than 3,000 Huntsman Textile Effects associates and contractors participated in the Big Switch Off program in 2015. This effort resulted in an estimated 115 kWh savings, ample to power up a 20-watt compact fluorescent lamp for 5,760 hours or 240 days.

More importantly, the Big Switch Off reaffirms one of Huntsman Textile Effects’ core values. We take sustainable approaches to business – and each of us has an important role to play as we contribute to the communities in which we operate.
