Islamabad, August 23, 2019: Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Metropolitan Corporation Islamabad (MCI), as part of its agreement with Ministry of Climate Change to support the Clean Green Pakistan Movement. This collaboration will include beautification, renovation and re-landscaping of 3 main places in the Capital City.

The MoU was signed by Sheikh Ansar Aziz, Mayor of Islamabad and Syed Mazhar Hussain, Chief Human Resource Officer, PTCL, followed by plantation of saplings at PTCL HQ.

Under the MoU, the green area along 9th Avenue and Jinnah Avenue Intersection will be renovated for the construction of a park near PTCL office building in F-8, Islamabad. PTCL is going to maintain and operate existing fountains in Kohsar Market, F-6 and 7th Avenue, near Zoo Intersection in Islamabad. This initiative is undertaken to improve the aesthetic look of the capital and to create recreational activity opportunities for the residents, visitors and general public.

On the occasion, Sheikh Ansar Aziz, Mayor of Islamabad, said, “I am glad to be part of this CSR initiative with PTCL for the beautification of Islamabad, under the Clean and Green movement. This agreement is an extension of the MoU that was signed earlier this year between Ministry of Climate Change and PTCL. It is indeed a step in the right direction to see a national company committed to this cause and we need more multinationals and private companies to come forward and join this movement.”

On the occasion, Syed Mazhar Hussain, Chief Human Resource Officer, PTCL, said, “Being a national company, we are at the forefront of serving communities across Pakistan under our CSR initiatives. Today, as part of our commitment with the Ministry of Climate Change, we are undertaking a few strategic locations in Islamabad for its further beautification and development of recreational areas for general public.”
