Earth Hour is the single, largest, symbolic mass participation event in the world. Born out of a hope that we could mobilize people to take action on climate change, Earth Hour now inspires a global community of millions of people in 7,001 cities and towns across 152 countries and territories to switch lights off for an hour as a massive show of concern for the environment.
The Swedish Chamber of Commerce India will switch off its lights. we hope you will, too.
Fredrik Palmgren and Mikael Balkö from multi award winning firm Centigo, speaks at Alfa Laval in Pune and the Palm Meadows Club in Bangalore on the topic:
“Competitiveness through an expansive and responsive approach”
Companies today face increased global competition and a rapidly changing environment. This has lead to new challenges in business management. How to create a company culture that is based on true commitment and dedication within the entire organization is one that is frequently discussed. Centigo has developed the concept of Business Wellness, which is a methodology to enable organizations to operate in harmony. Balance within all aspects of a business will set a foundation for a winning strategy for the future through flexibility and quick adap-tion.
