The ENERGY STAR Change a Light, Change the World Campaign is a national call-to-action to encourage individuals to help change the world, one light — one energy-saving step — at a time. The Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Energy, and Department of Housing and Urban Development are pleased to partner to sponsor the Campaign this year. Learn more about the Campaign.
As a Change a Light Pledge Driver, you can continue collecting lighting-specific pledges to meet your 2007/2008 pledge goals until October 1, 2008. The link from your Web site will take participants to the ENERGY STAR Pledge, but if they pledge in the “Change a Light” section of the pledge form, their lighting pledges will still be credited to you.
If you are ready to transition to the Change the World, Start with ENERGY STAR campaign, you can become a Change the World pledge driver now and start tracking savings garnered from participants who take the new pledge.
Most of us want to save energy and are sensitive to the need to protect our environment, but not everyone knows where to start. You can help!
Take a leadership role — and make a difference in helping to save energy and fight global climate change — by inviting your community to take the pledge. (View All Pledge Groups)
