STAFF REPORT IBD: PTCL, the countrys largest and only integrated telecom service provider, has recently commemorated the international Earth Day by kicking off a tree plantation campaign at its headquarters in Islamabad.
The company officials and employees attended the ceremony while Senior Executive Vice President HR, Syed Mazhar Hussain launched the tree plantation campaign by planting a Blue Pine sapling in the central gardens of the PTCL headquarters building.
“PTCL has made significant strides last year to reduce its carbon footprint by encouraging a paperless environment and using recycled material for its products,” said Syed Mazhar Hussain on the occasion. “We are firmly committed to sustainability, and this tree plantation campaign is yet another step in our ongoing efforts to preserve and protect our precious environment for future generations.”
In 2009 the United Nations had designated April 22 as the International Mother Earth Day. It is commemorated annually in more than 175 countries to increase awareness and appreciation of the Earth’s natural environment.
STAFF REPORT IBD: Syncronys International Inc. (Mandeville, Louisiana, US) has announced that it has received a $4.5 million order to install 400 solar-powered well pumps in Pakistan.
