‘’Pakistan’s Green Cover has reached alarmingly low levels, falling below 2% currently. This along with other factors has given rise to the Urban Heat Island effect in Karachi and other parts of the country, which claimed the precious lives of thousands of our citizens recently. Byco is acting as a catalyst in countering the effects of climate change, by distributing 2 million Moringa seeds across Pakistan.
Byco also has partnered with Urban Forest to deploy the Miyawaki Method of afforestation to turn the nation around and Make Pakistan Green Again. Byco’s mission is to serve and satisfy Pakistan’s energy demand in a sustainable manner’’, said Mr. Shehryar Ahmad, GM and Head of Communications, BPPL.
