KARACHI – The Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC) fully endorses and pledges to extend its full support in creating awareness about the Earth Day – celebrated globally on April 22.
In a statement issued on Monday, the KESC stated that it is a “socially responsible organisation and cognizant of its responsibilities towards its operating environment”.
In 1970, the Earth Day originated in the US and the now global event is celebrated by more than 500 million people in 175 countries across the world. The Earth Day’s theme for 2012 was “Mobilise the Earth”.
The theme calls for people to transcend nationalities, backgrounds and join hands to celebrate the event and encourage the planet’s protection. This theme puts greater responsibility to take practical steps to protect the world and ensure a better tomorrow.
The KESC believes that small contributions in raising awareness levels in this direction today can be converted into major initiatives in the future. With this spirit in mind the, Energy Conservation Department of KESC participated in a number of public awareness campaigns to mark the Earth Day celebrations.
The KESC conducted an awareness camp at the Dolmen Mall Clifton and was an active participant in the beach cleaning activity at Clifton beach, held by the Environment and Alternative Energy Ministry.
The KESC was also present in good faith at the pledge-making activity held at the Bagh Ibne Qasim, aimed at engaging people in activities that work towards sustaining and saving the environment.
In a message at the event, KESC CEO Tabish Gohar said: “We should all join hands to raise our voices for a sustainable future and direct our efforts towards saving our planet and contribute in our individual and collective capacities to make this world a better place to live in.”
