  • It will be held this Saturday, March 23, between 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm.

  • In 2023, more than 70 of the Group’s buildings and offices turned off their lights.                                                                                         

  • Since 2009, the Group has participated in Earth Hour, which is a reminder of the main environmental problems, such as global warming.

  • By 2023, the insurance company had reduced its energy consumption by 22% compared to 2019 and is working to achieve global neutrality by 2030.

    MAPFRE is once again joining the Earth Hour initiative led by WWF, the largest mobilization campaign against Climate Change. This year, the slogan is “Give an hour for Earth”, giving society the opportunity to show its concern for the environmental degradation of the planet and the need to act.

    This Saturday, March 23, between 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm, the lights of the most iconic buildings and offices worldwide will be switched off. Last year, more than 70 buildings and offices in 16 Group countries joined the initiative.

    The company has been participating in this campaign since 2009, as yet another demonstration of its commitment to the fight against Climate Change. This is a challenge it carries out through an ambitious Environmental Footprint Plan, whose ultimate objective is to reduce the company’s carbon footprint.

    MAPFRE doubled its energy consumption reduction target set for 2023, which had been set at 11%, reaching 22%. The company is thus moving forward in its commitment to energy efficiency as a key element of its decarbonization strategy and with the objective of achieving neutrality by 2030 in all the countries where it operates.
