USJE joined the global initiative "Earth Hour 2024"


By shutting down the cement mills, Cementarnica USJE once again joined the global initiative "Earth Hour". The cement mills were shut down between 8:30 PM and 9:30 PM on March 23, 2024, and other non-essential plants were shut down as well.

By joining the global action "Earth Hour", USJE saved about 7 MWh of electricity, which is approximately the amount of energy necessary to power about 2300 homes and about 40,000 lamps.

With the achieved electricity savings, USJE contributes to the reduction of the total emissions of the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, which are identified as one of the main causes of global warming and climate change. In addition, every year, USJE encourages its employees and contractors, inviting them to actively participate in the "Earth Hour" action, by reducing the consumption of electricity in their homes.
