Al-Rahim Textile Industries wins Environment Excellence Award 2013

Karachi, July 10, 2013 (PPI-OT): Al-Rahim Textile Industries has achieved 10th Annual Environment Excellence Awards 2013, because of running ‘Healthy Environment for All (HEA)’ program within organization, and introducing a range of eco-friendly terry towels in the international market. Supported by United Nation Environment Program (UNEP), the environment excellence awards are annually organized by National Forum for Environment and Health (NFEH), Publicity Channel, and Energy Update Pakistan.

Mahmood Akhtar Cheema, Country head International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN-Pakistan), Senator A Haseeb Khan, Former Federal minister of petroleum Sohail Wajahat Siddiqui, Commissioner Karachi Shoaib Siddiqui, and Consul General Yamen Dr. Ikhtiar Baig, were the chief guests on the occasion.

Speaking on this occasion, Mr. Faisal Saya CEO Al-Rahim Textile Industries said that this is more than an acquisition of an award, because the worldwide recognition of Pakistani textile companies as environmentally and socially compliant firms is a real achievement that must be appreciated at all forums.

Starting from the manufacturing of the finished products to supply chain management, according to Faisal Saya, today’s textile industry regards CSM as a highly valuable organizational policy, and corporate sustainability management in this sector is more crucial and significant than other trading and industrial sectors.

‘The blind rate of modernity and development has blessed the modern civilization with tricky riddles and complicated and deep-rooted miseries e.g. environmental pollution and degradation, deforestation, toxic wastes, greenhouse gases, and uncontrollable fumes and industrial clutter, and spills etc.’, Faisal Saya said.

Annual Environmental Excellence Awards (AEEAs) were instituted 10 years ago in Pakistan, and have lured a very enthusiastic response from the local industries. The AEEA are designed to recognize and promote the Pakistan-based manufacturers and exporters which make an outstanding contribution towards sustainable development.
