Daylight Hour—Lights Out to Support Sustainability
I’m delighted to announce that our Northern California offices are participating in Daylight Hour, a national initiative promoting the critical importance of corporate responsibility. Please join us on Friday, June 17th when we will turn off the lights from 12:00 Noon until 1:00 p.m and enjoy the daylight. (1 Hour)

This national initiative is being spearheaded by The Cushman & Wakefield Corporate Responsibility team, who has invited all U.S. offices to participate.

C&W’s 23rd Floor Offices @ 425 Market Street Will Go Dark for 1 hour.

What Exactly is Daylight Hour?
Organized by Building Energy Exchange, Daylight Hour spreads the word through office involvement and social media about the benefits of utilizing available natural light in lieu of electric lighting, including reduced greenhouse gas emissions, improved well-being, and financial savings.

It All Begins at 12:00 NOON (Sharp) on June 17th – Local Time

Lights Out – June 17th – 12:00 Noon Until 1:00 pm.
This energy-saving campaign means that Cushman & Wakefield’s  offices located at 425 Market Street, 201 California and 555 12th Street in Oakland will be turning off all office lights from 12:00 noon until  1:00 p.m. local time, joining more than 300 other participating organizations committed to sustainability.

” Getting involved not only supports the Daylight Hour initiative, but showcases Cushman & Wakefield’s leadership in energy efficiency and sustainability. During the 1 hour Lights Out, all other electricity; i.e. computers, phones, copy machines, coffee grinders and printers will not be affected – lights out only! ”
