ECO-IEST: Prime Minister Imran Khan’s campaign of "Clean and Green Pakistan” is increasingly been getting support from key national institutions – like National Bank of Pakistan. Shaukat Mahmood, Group Head Service Quality, NBP, formally launched the Bank’s "Green Pakistan” initiative at the Wali Khan University in KP.

On October 8, 2018, PM Khan, while launching the countrywide ‘Clean and Green Pakistan’ campaign, urged people from all social strata to make it a success by actively participating in it. "This campaign is for our future. Everyone has to partake in it,” the prime minister urged, lamenting: "Pakistan is a gift but unfortunately we haven’t paid attention to its beautification.”

He vowed to make Pakistan a clean and green country by stretching the campaign to every part of the country. The cleanliness drive has three aspects, Mr. Khan explained and added the first aspect of the drive is spreading awareness among people, especially children, about the importance of sanitation and thus incorporate a lesson in this regard in school syllabus of grade-1 to 5.

The Research Data Centre will be the first and only RDC where students could access real-time data of international financial institutions.

Secondly, he said, the people of Pakistan, will be given awareness about dumping sites. He added his government will overcome challenges of load-shedding by generating electricity from trash. The prime minister said there will be contests regarding sanitation at tehsil level every two months and the official concerned would be rewarded or penalized on the basis of the state of cleanliness in their areas.

Emphasizing that the government alone cannot bring about change, PM Khan urged members of the civil society to complement the efforts of the government by creating necessary awareness about sanitation and environmental issues. The decision to launch a cleanliness drive across the country was taken during a meeting of the Council of Common Interests (CCI) presided over the prime minister last month.
