‘Clean Green

Pakistan’ Tree Plantation Drive in the Capital

Islamabad (March 16, 2019): With its commitment to Prime Minister’s ‘Clean Green Pakistan’ initiative,
Nestlé Pakistan is paving the way for a sustainable environment by launching a country-wide tree
plantation drive. Advancing the initiative, Nestlé Pakistan in partnership with Metropolitan Corporation
of Islamabad (MCI), conducted a tree plantation activity in Rose and Jasmine Garden, Islamabad led by
Mayor Sheikh Anser Aziz.

Geared at fostering a culture of sustained cleanliness and environmental well-being, the drive sheds
light on Nestlé’s philosophy that revolves around striving towards zero environmental impact of their
operations in a systematic and consistent manner.

Speaking at the occasion, Waqar Ahmad, Head of Corporate Affairs, Nestlé Pakistan said, “The country-
wide tree plantation and cleanliness drive is the result of Nestlé’s global and local commitments. We will
be carrying out more cleaning and tree plantation drives in partnership with ‘Clean Green Pakistan’ as
we pledge to plant 10,000 trees in the capital with partnership with MCI.” He further added, “Under the
initiative, the company will be focusing on key pillars of Sanitation and Hygiene, kicking-off tree
plantation drives and providing access to clean drinking water for communities. This initiative is
completely aligned with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) including Clean Water and Sanitation,
and Life on Land.”

Mayor Islamabad, Sheikh Anser Aziz, while expressing his views said, “Islamabad is the capital city and
face of Pakistan and we aim to enhance its green cover to make the city more environmentally
sustainable. Not only do activities like these set things in motion, but also constitute a much-required
push to awaken residents of the city. I would like to thank Nestlé Pakistan as they are venturing out
from city to city to ensure a safe environment reflecting their commitment towards ‘Clean Green
Pakistan’ and I hope other industry members will follow suit.”
