Clean Green Pakistan Drive by Earthlink Developments.
Over the past years, the world has seen extremely negative impacts of climate change. Human activities such as deforestation and carbon emissions along with the burning of fossil fuels have immensely affected the natural eco-system of the earth. Pakistan has been experiencing severe impacts as a result of climate change. The temperature rise and unusual rain patterns have caused the glaciers to melt at rapid speed. It resulted in floods and also produced heat waves during the hot seasons. The problem does not stop here. Climate change also affects crop production and the quality of some foods. As a result, we fail to balance up the demand-supply chain. Eventually, the dis-balanced import-export graph puts the economy in trouble.
Therefore, the Prime Minister of Pakistan, realizing the need of the hour, took an initiative to minimize the effects of climate change. He promoted the conception of forestation and tree plantation. Thus, a campaign called Clean Green Pakistan was launched on the national level to engage all the segments of the society.
Under the Corporate Social Responsibility, Earthlink also showed enthusiastic participation in the Prime Minister’s Clean Green Pakistan campaign. The vision is to restrict the effects of climate change. And make the country a clean, green, and healthy place to live. Therefore, the company carried out a plantation drive in different areas, and its team planted hundreds of saplings. The target is to achieve an eco-friendly environment for the coming generations. Ratan Tata, Former Chairman of Tata Group, once said “Businesses need to go beyond the interests of their companies to the communities they serve.” The quote fits perfectly into the current situation.
Earthlink Developments Promotes Education & Literacy
Pakistan has been facing a severe problem of illiteracy. According to a report by UNICEF, approximately 22.8 million children aged 5-16 are out of school. The corporate sector has immense potential to work for the welfare of society. Earthlink, being an active participant of corporate social responsibility, has been very keen to address the crucial issue of lack of opportunities for children to acquire quality education.
Therefore, the company has undertaken concrete steps to support and promote education by giving financial aid to the schools that promise to deliver quality education to the children who are the future of the country.
Corporate Social Responsibility Creates a Win-Win Situation
Winston Churchill often expressed the importance of Corporate Social Responsibility. He said: “We make living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” Corporate Social Responsibility is a valuable concept. Inspirational enough to motivate the companies to take initiatives that can be beneficial for the whole community. As the famous quote says, “without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community.” Socially responsible corporate companies like Earthlink Developments are better trusted and admired by the public due to the idea that the companies care for the community. They not only do business but also serve the people in return.
