SECMC Promises to Plant 100,000 Trees
To mark the celebrations and importance of Earth Day, Sindh Engro Coal Mining Company (SECMC) has pledged to plant more than 100,000 trees. Brig (retd) Tarique Quadir Lakhiar, General Manager, Administration and CSR of SECMC said “Besides actively engaged in the extraction of coal, Sindh Engro Coal Mining Company (SECMC) has started afforestation in Thar coal’s block-II and for the purpose, 100,000 tree saplings will be planted using saline water”.
Approximately 19,000 saplings of different indigenous and exotic species of trees have been planted in the Green Park to further the plantation drive in Thar coalfield area. In order to meet environmental standards it was declared by SECMC earlier this year that the company will plant 10 trees for every 1 tree cut. Greener and clean environment would ensure development on sustainable basis as steps to promote greenery would not only safeguard health of local people but they would also bring prosperity in the entire region.
