Ufone pledged to support Earth Hour 2016 in association with WWF Pakistan as part of its persistent quest for corporate social responsibility and environment sustainability.
The company observed the Earth Hour by switching off unnecessary lights and electrical appliances. In doing so, it urges its consumers to follow suit.
“The world is changing at a fast pace and demands our attention as far as environment sustainability is concerned. It’s about time we took our planet seriously and pooled in individual efforts for a greater cause,” said Mr. Amir Pasha, Head of PR and CSR, Ufone.
He further stated that “Earth Hour is not merely about saving energy for an hour alone but should rather come to a realisation for thinking beyond ourselves and more towards environment sustainability that would benefit the world at a larger scale. As part of our corporate social responsibility strategy, we deem it our priority to contribute towards this cause and have therefore associated ourselves with WWF to show solidarity at the business level.”
