On Thursday, February 16, the lights will be turned off again at LENET to join the M'illumino di Meno awareness campaign.
Turning off the lights to turn on awareness: Lenet Group (THUN S.p.A. SB) takes up the challenge launched by Caterpillar Rai Radio 2 and joins the 19th Energy Saving and Sustainable Lifestyles Day.
On Thursday, February 16, all the windows of the 126 direct THUN Stores will be turned off for one hour at opening time, just as in the evening the exterior lights of the Bolzano headquarters and the iconic 600-meter illuminated wall of the Mantova headquarters, next to the A22 highway, will remain off.
Also invited to join are the more than 190 franchise outlets and 440 multibrand stores in the home decoration and tableware world that handle the group's brands: THUN, La Porcellana Bianca, Rose&Tulipani and Rituali Domestici.
The initiative is part of the LENET group's commitment to the planet, which aims to promote the adoption of increasingly progressive environmental standards. The company, which has taken on the legal form of a Benefit Corporation since 2022, places environmental sustainability and respect for the planet among the pillars of its development and path.
"Minimizing our environmental impact and promoting responsible use of energy and resources is today an essential and unavoidable condition for having future development. As companies, it is our task to continue working to build a new economic model that considers social and environmental impact an integral part of the design." said Simon Thun, Vice President Lenet Group.
THE "M'ILLUMINO DI MENO" PROJECT - Since February 2005 Caterpillar Rai Radio 2 organizes the Day of Energy Saving and Sustainable Lifestyles "M'illumino di Meno", with an invitation to symbolically turn off the lights in the afternoon of February 16, anniversary of the entry into force of the Kyoto Protocol.
In preparation for the Day, the program promotes and publicizes the more rational use of energy resources, suggests ways and approaches to waste reduction policies, shares innovations and projects implemented by the various members.
A repertoire of good environmental practices has developed around the Day, which have changed over the years with technological and administrative changes, and have been shared and participated in by the entire community of listeners, who in turn have integrated and enriched them.
Institutions, private citizens, schools and universities, companies, museums, sports clubs, third sector associations have all actively participated in the Day.
