Bandar Seri Begawan, 25 March 2017. What started as a symbolic moment in Sydney, Australia in 2007 is now the world's largest grassroots movement for the environment. In celebrating Earth Hour 2017, Baiduri Bank organised an open-air market style event at the Royal Wharf in the capital called "Under the Stars".

Featuring pop-up local vendors and food trucks, the event saw throngs of people, Baiduri staff and their family members gather around the open space eagerly waiting for Earth Hour. During the lights-out period at 8.30pm, candles placed on the ground to form '60+' were lit to illuminate the area.

The Under the Stars event was officially opened to the public at 4pm and ended at 10pm.

Pierre Imhof, CEO of Baiduri Bank, spoke on the importance of Earth Hour and the Bank's contribution to this global movement. "As in previous years, we will yet again do what we can to contribute to this global cause. As part of our CSR initiatives, Earth Hour is one of the easiest ways we can participate."

He further elaborated, "In further developing our local economy, The Under The Stars event brings together many local Bruneian vendors under one roof. The event acts as a platform to engage our local community in a social environment. We hope that these initiatives we take in supporting this cause will encourage others to do the same."

Baiduri Bank has participated in Earth Hour for the past 7 years.
