BELIEVE IN GREEN – TODAY, TOMORROW & FOREVER

Pakistan, the fifth largest country with 220 million people of which nearly 65% are below the age of 35. Our history is replete with moments of internal and external crises and conflicts.

There are indeed a lot of problems in our country, and everyone seems to be so disappointed and frustrated that every third person wants to flee the country — it seems no one wants to live here anymore. But, think for a second: it is our country and it is we who have to set things right.

No one from outside is going to come to improve the situation here. When there’s a crisis, there’s also hope and the best of humanity finally get the limelight they deserve. If we look deep beyond the surface, we would realize that this land of ours is blessed in more ways than one.

Pakistan is blessed with a lot of remarkable things, and with wonderful and brilliant people who have madeour nation proud.

Cnergyico, one of Pakistan’s largest energy companies, launched its recent campaign celebrating 75 years of Pakistan to spread the message of positivity and optimism.

It is vital that everyone plays their part in making Pakistan prosperous by spreading joy during these dark times. The Company is highlighting this message in its latest marketing campaign, called Azm-e-Pakistan.

Cnergyico runs Pakistan’s largest oil refinery, located in Hub, Balochistan that can process up to 156,000 barrels of crude oil per day.

The company distributes fuel through its network of more than 450 petrol pumps situated in all of the major cities, towns, and highways.

Cnergyico is also the only company in Pakistan that owns a dedicated crude oil terminal called the SPM (“Single Point Mooring”) located in the deep sea off the coast of Balochistan.

With its significant investment in technology and infrastructure, Cnergyico strives to maximize the value of the energy it produces for Pakistan along with a commitment to cultivating value to society.

Last year, Cnergyico ran the “Pyara Pakistan, Hamara Pakistan” campaign that highlighted the country’s vibrant culture, breathtaking landscapes, and delicious cuisines. This year, the Company highlights a message of hope and compassion.

Small acts of kindness, even a smile or a thoughtful gesture, can go a long way and make someone’s day much better.

These acts of kindness and compassion can lift our spirits, inspire hope for a better future, and make us stronger as a nation.

If we look around, we will see that so many people show generosity, selfless spirit, offer a helping hand, and support each other whenever any aid is required.

If a car breaks down in the middle of a road, numerous pedestrians would stop to offer help without asking.

If someone falls while walking, strangers would pick them back up. Daily, meals are given to hundreds of thousands of people, where various institutions are constantly working to ensure that no one goes home on an empty stomach.

It is evident that the country has a bright future. Though Pakistan’s development has been uneven, the momentum of its 220 million inhabitants, whose indomitable spirit has overcome so many challenges, shall always carry it forward.

Pakistan is at the crossroads of history, where pressures on this land from within and without are extraordinary.

Yet the nation is standing up with more resilience and spirit. Disasters, political or natural, come and go. But the very next moment, Pakistanis come out with a new vigor to cope with the situation.

On this Independence Day, let’s pledge to spread the spirit of love, compassion, and selfless service forward, and promise to do at least one act of kindness every day. There are virtually countless opportunities to do good deeds and spread joy.

All we have to do is open our hearts. There is no doubt Pakistan is going through a difficult patch, but through simple acts of kindness, love, and compassion, we can spread joy and positivity. This way, everyone can play their part in making Pakistan prosperous.
