WWF-Pakistan and Banglalink Digital Communications Limited signed an MoU to imple-ment the Green Office Initiative at their head office in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

The implementation of the Green Office programme will help Banglalink reduce the use of electricity, paper, travel, water and waste in the office which will not only reduce associated costs but carbon emissions as well, said a press release issued here on Thursday. The Green Office team of WWF-Pakistan will liaise with Banglalink to devise an environment management system to set targets to cut back on the use of resources. The Green Office Initiative is geared towards bringing a behavioural change in its member offices, therefore regular trainings and workshops will be conducted to raise awareness amongst Banglalink’s employees to ensure effective implementation. According to Nazifa Butt, Manager Environ-mental Assessment/Green Office Initiative, WWF-Pakistan, Organizations can cut direct and indirect carbon emissions from their offices and minimize their contribution to climate change through the implementation of the Green Office Initiative. Green Office certified companies aim to reduce their dependency on erratic electricity and water supply in the country. There is a continuous push to find renewable energy alternatives and even building rainwater storage facilities in many of the member offices. The objectives of WWF-Pakistan’s Green Office Initiative are in line with the recently announced national policy to reduce carbon emissions from Pakistan by at least five per cent.—APP
