ISLAMABAD: Development Communications Network (Devcom-Pakistan) will confer the Pakistan Environmental Award upon the best green initiatives to mark World Environment Day on June 4 and to celebrate and recognize the commendable efforts of organizations towards environmental stewardship through Corporate Social Responsibility and environmental compliance and conservation.

Devcom-Pakistan Executive Director Munir Ahmed said that a number of corporate organizations and projects had delivered exemplary results but lacked due appreciation and recognition. The Pakistan Environmental Award will also encourage every organization in the corporate sector to adopt environmental compliance, green technologies, and engage the communities in environmental conservation and protection. The event will include the presentations of best practices and a conference to explore the way forward for a climate-resilient Pakistan, APP reported.

Protecting Environment

Munir Ahmed said that in an era where the preservation of the Earth is more crucial than ever, the corporate sector in collaboration with the government and the public can take numerous CSR measures besides playing a pivotal role in promoting sustainable practices. The industry shall take steps to mitigate the adverse impacts of business operations on the environment.

He said that CSR embodies the responsibility of organizations to operate in a way that not only benefits their bottom line but also contributes positively to the environment and society. Pakistan’s corporate sector organizations had numerous CSR steps that contributed towards the conservation and protection of the environment but remained low-profiled.

Devcom-Pakistan aimed to highlight those companies that have demonstrated steadfast commitment to environmental sustainability, paving the way for a greener and more sustainable future by appreciating their efforts with an exclusively designed award and offering them an opportunity to narrate their CSR for environment success stories to the relevant stakeholders and media, he said.
