Hashoo Hotels collaborates with NEECA for energy conservation fund

ISLAMABAD, OCT 3 /DNA/ – Of the various challenges that we face today, be they economic, political or social, there is a growing consensus that climate change is the most existential. Although Pakistan is responsible for less than one percent of global greenhouse gas emissions but is eighth on a list compiled by the NGO Germanwatch of countries most vulnerable to extreme weather caused by climate change.

With this in sight, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed by Mr. Haseeb Gardezi, COO Hospitality and Education Division, Hashoo Group and Dr. Sardar Mohazzam, Managing Director NEECA on 30th September at the NEECA Building, Islamabad. By signing this MoU, both the organizations, Hashoo Hotels and National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority(NEECA), have entered in a new era of energy efficiency and conservation, which will benefit Hashoo Hotels financially besides making them environment-friendly and will be another feather in the cap of NEECA.

On the occasion, Mr. Haseeb Gardezi said that “Following the vision of Mr. Murtaza Hashwani, at Hashoo Group we are committed to achieving our Net Zero goals by the year 2030. Together with NEECA, we at all our hotels, are looking to introduce energy audits and energy saving initiatives for reducing carbon emissions, starting by making changes towards efficient lighting solutions, switching to less carbon fuel and solar panels for electricity consumption”.

Mr. Munir Ahmad, Director General Planning, Policy, Innovation Program & Research spoke about the upcoming energy conservation national policy.

The shape and impact of climate change over the coming years is in the hands of our nation. The actions that we take together, today will influence the trajectory of climate change for the next three decades and more.
