To celebrate and recognise the commendable efforts of organisations towards environmental stewardship through Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and environmental compliance and conservation, the Pakistan Environmental Award will be awarded to the best green initiatives on World Environment Day (WED).

Speaking about the award, Devcom-Pakistan (Development Communications Network) Executive Director Munir Ahmed, said a number of corporate organisations and projects have delivered exemplary outputs but lack due appreciation and recognition.

The Pakistan Environmental Award will encourage every organisation in the corporate sector to adopt green technologies and environmental compliance and engage communities in environmental conservation and protection.

The event will include presentations of best practices and a conference aimed at exploring the way forward for a climate resilient Pakistan.

The Pakistan Environmental Award will be given in 12 categories including the Sustainability Leadership Award, the Carbon Footprint Reduction Award, the Renewable Energy Excellence Award, the Water Conservation Achievement Award, the Biodiversity Conservation Award, the Waste Reduction and Recycling Award, the Green Product Innovation Award, the Environmental Education and Awareness Award, the Climate Adaptation and Resilience Award, the Supply Chain Sustainability Award, the Community Engagement for Environmental Impact Award and the Corporate Ecosystem Responsibility Award.

“In an era where the preservation of our planet is more crucial than ever, the corporate sector in collaboration with the government and the citizens can take numerous CSR initiatives besides playing a pivotal role in promoting sustainable practices,” said Munir Ahmed.
