Pakistan’s premier oil Company, Byco Petroleum Pakistan Limited, launched their Green campaign to Make Pakistan Green Again on the nation’s 71st Independence Day at a special tree plantation ceremony held at the Urban Forest park in Clifton Karachi. Shaniera Akram, wife of renowned Pakistan fast bowler Wasim Akram, inaugurated the ceremony to plant 1,000 trees at Shahzad Qureshi’s Urban Forest. A further 2,000 trees have been planted in District Lasbela at Byco’s Bowzer village near its refinery in Balochistan.
Byco has concurrently launched a campaign offering complimentary pouches of 2 million Moringa Tree seeds to its customers to plant and help Make Pakistan Green Again. The objective of this campaign is to lead the way in showing Pakistan’s citizens how they can Be The Change that we want to see in the world. Every individual needs to be conscientious about the environment to ensure a healthy future for the generations to come. To inaugurate the campaign to Make Pakistan Green Again, Byco organized a Tree Plantation ceremony at the Urban Forest in Clifton, Karachi.
“Pakistan’s Green Cover has reached alarmingly low levels, falling below 2% currently. This along with other factors has given rise to the Urban Heat Island effect in Karachi and other parts of the country, which claimed the precious lives of thousands of our citizens recently. Byco is acting as a catalyst in countering the effects of climate change, by distributing 2 million Moringa seeds across Pakistan. Byco also has partnered with Urban Forest to deploy the Miyawaki Method of afforestation to turn the nation around and Make Pakistan Green Again. Byco’s mission is to serve and satisfy Pakistan’s energy demand in a sustainable manner”, said Mr. Shehryar Ahmad, GM and Head of Communications, BPPL.
