From reducing our carbon footprint to taking another step closer to a waste-free future by creating awareness, enlightening the younger generations about nutrition, enabling rural women to become financially empowered – our efforts on ground have made a positive impact in many ways.”

“As part of our renewable energy strategy, we powered our 2.5MW and 2.6MW solar power plants at our factories in Kabirwala and Sheikhupura.” he added.
