The women employees of Indus Motor Company (IMC) planted trees to contribute to the company’s ‘Million Tree Drive’.
More than 80 women employees of IMC have planted trees to mark their participation in the company’s environment initiative.
It is to be noted that IMC launched its ‘Million Tree Campaign’ last year as its commitment towards supporting the government’s Clean and Green Pakistan movement.
“More than 175,000 plants have been planted across Pakistan till now. The purpose of this campaign is to engage IMC employees and senior management in a collective effort to stimulate a positive impact on their surroundings,” said CEO IMC Ali Asghar Jamali.
He added their inspiration comes from the government’s vision for a greener Pakistan and they are hopeful that their efforts would serve as an example for other individuals and businesses to emulate.
With the ambition to reduce its carbon footprint and support Toyota’s pledge to zero CO2 emissions from factories by 2050, the company aims to plant one million trees across the city over the next few years.
As an active signatory of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), the company underscored its contribution in achieving sustainable development goals, particularly goal number 13 regarding climate action.
The ‘Million Tree Plantation’ project has a long-term aim to protect the land against erosion, turn the country’s barren landscape into forests, enhance rainfall prospects and help mitigate the effects of climate change on ecosystems and biodiversity of the country.
