Lahore (Muhammad Yasir) Engro has reaffirmed its commitment to support the sustainable Development Goal 6 which is crystal clear on conserving the water so that the same can be provided to all by 2030.
On the World Water Day 2019, Engro conducted a graceful campaign at the plant site advocating the Sustainable Development Goal # 6 which helped create awareness among the employees, stakeholder’s and guests to make sure that we take adequate steps at all levels and at all places. Speaking on the occasion, Plant Manager Zarkhez, Wajid Hussain Junejo, unveiled the strategy and plans to support the SDG6 to ensure availability of water for all by 2030.
Most the population in Pakistan especially in rural areas has no access to safe drinking water and their lands, agriculture, households, schools, workplaces, farms and plants seem struggling to survive.
Wajid Hussain Junejo said that at Engro Zarkhez plant we continue to find new ways to conserve water so that the same can be available elsewhere for economic as well as social needs. We have been able to reduce our water consumption at the plant by a massive 45% by making our internal processes more efficient and using sprinkler irrigation system for the green patches. We launched pitcher irrigation system at site instead of flood irrigation and recycled the waste water ensuring nothing leaves our premises. We revamped our drinking water systems at site and established clean drinking water stations at various locations where quality of water is maintained on global standards frequently checking the set parameters.
At Engro, we are passionate about ensuring that our policies and procedures are environmentally friendly. Over the decades, Engro continues to be more environmentally conscious and is aware of its surroundings, demonstrating our focus on the environmental improvements in line with global initiatives for collective benefit and providing a better tomorrow to the next generations. This year also, we remained true to our commitment to be an environmentally conscious organization by preserving our planet and meeting our environmental goals.
