Shanghai Electric, which is at the helm of a mega CPEC project in Thar, partnered with National Fo-rum for Environment and Health for the successful hosting of the World Environment Day 2021 Seminar. The hybrid seminar took place at the NED Uni-versity City Campus Karachi on Zoom.
This year’s theme for the World Environment Day was Eco-system Restoration, which has been de-fined by UNEP as “eco-system restoration means assisting in the recovery of eco-systems that have been degraded or destroyed, as well as conserving the eco-systems that are still intact.
Healthier eco-systems, with richer bio-diversity yield greater benefits such as more fertile soils, bigger yields of timber, fish, and larger stores of greenhouse gases.”
Commenting on the occasion, Mr Li Jigen, CEO SSRL, a subsidiary of Shanghai Electric, said that his com-pany will always come forward to play its role in protecting the environment.
