Lights Out at Volkswagen Oman for Earth Hour 2013
Wattayah Motors, official dealers for Volkswagen in Oman turn off lights to mark Earth Hour 2013 
Aligned with Volkswagen’s global ‘Think Blue’ philosophy
To mark its support and commitment for energy conservation Wattayah Motors – exclusive dealers of Volkswagen in the Sultanate, participated in the Earth Hour by switching off lights in its Athaibah showroom in Muscat from 8:30 - 9:30 p.m. local time on Saturday - March 23, 2012 
Hemant Bhat, General Manager of Volkswagen Oman noted, “Protecting the environment is something everyone needs to consider, and participation in Earth Hour encourages the community to consider how best to preserve our precious environment for future generations. Volkswagen reflects this emphasis on environmental ideals through its “Think Blue” philosophy
He added, “Through this initiative, we wanted to highlight Volkswagen’s commitment to make a meaningful difference in our community by following energy conservation practices that are geared to optimizing consumption, in our showroom, offices and workshop areas. If we each make small changes in our every day energy habits, this small yet significant gesture combines with the efforts of others to make a significant reduction in total energy consumed.”
Earth Hour is an annual global event organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) by which they urge households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour to raise awareness about the need to take action on climate change.
There are a number of ways in which people can register their commitment to protecting and preserving the environment during Earth Hour. Millions of people around the world generally come together to call for action on climate change by doing something quite simple—turning off their lights for one hour.
This gesture by Volkswagen in Oman on occasion of Earth Hour goes to show the seriousness of a company to conserve energy and be part of larger cause through innovation and creating eco-friendly, resource-efficient cars.
Think Blue is Volkswagen’s way of taking responsibility for their role in the environment and creating remedies for existing problems. Think Blue aims to create a fun driving experience that is also environmentally conscious by introducing new technology that greatly increases fuel efficiency and reduces C02 emissions.
