According to Dawn Newspaper, nine companies in Pakistan have committed to the goal of net zero greenhouse gas emissions at the corporate level. The companies belong to the textile and fast moving consumer goods sectors.
The commitment to net zero by the coalition, Net Zero Pakistan, was reaffirmed at a roundtable convened by the Pakistan Environment Trust, British High Commission and Pakistan Textile Council.
Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Climate Change Malik Amin Aslam, British High Commissioner Christian Turner, former finance minister Dr Shamshad Akhtar, leaders from the nine signatories and other interested organisations were present.
The signatories, who have already signed up to Net Zero Pakistan and the global race to zero campaign, include Tetra Pak, Interloop, Sapphire Finishing Mills, Artistic Milliners, Gul Ahmed, Soorty Enterprises, US Apparel and Textiles, Mahmood Group and Liberty Mills.
The companies were invited to the roundtable to reaffirm their commitment and to discuss the roadmap for Net Zero Pakistan.
Members of Net Zero Pakistan also signed up for the Global Race to Zero campaign championed by the British High Commission.
“We have put our trust in nature-based solutions and clean energy and believe in being a part of the solution to climate change rather than adding to the global problem,” said Amin Aslam.
