Jazz, Pakistan’s largest digital operator and lifestyle partner, has declared its intention to further its climate commitment by joining the Collect and Recycle (CoRe) Alliance.
As part of its sustainability program, the corporation has reiterated its goal to decrease its carbon footprint through energy efficiency and other actions that will cut emissions and boost adaption efforts. This goal was first stated on World Environment Day.
CoRe is an alliance that aims to create a circular economy by lowering its packaging footprint and promoting sustainable and innovative practices. It is made up of the top business leaders, NGOs, and prominent packaging companies in the nation.
Ecolean, Engro Polymer & Chemicals, FrieslandCampina, Green Earth Recycling, Lucky Core Industries Limited, METRO, Nestlé Pakistan, Novatex, Packages, PARCO, PepsiCo, SDPI, SPEL, Tetra Pak, TOTAL PARCO, UNDP, Unilever, and WWF-Pakistan are some of the organizations that belong to the Alliance.
Jazz remains committed to being a part of the solution because climate action is a collective responsibility; Syed Fakhar Ahmed, Chief Corporate & Regulatory Officer, stated, “Jazz is pursuing several energy conservation initiatives, and our commitment to being net zero by 2050 with the GSMA demonstrates our ambition to fight climate change for a healthier planet.”
CoRe is the first multi-stakeholder packaging alliance in Pakistan, bringing together groups with similar goals to address packaging waste. Jazz is the group’s newest member, which makes me delighted.
We will move faster towards a waste-free future, in my opinion, because of Jazz’s vision to use technology to improve the lives and livelihoods of Pakistanis and its position as the nation’s top digital player, according to Sheikh Waqar Ahmad, CEO of CoRe.
The CoRe Alliance membership will provide the cellular and digital services behemoth Jazz the chance to meet down with other climate-focused members and business experts to figure out a long-term strategy for addressing Pakistan’s grave climate crisis.
Jazz will be able to collaborate with the other members of the CoRe platform to come up with practical implementation strategies as well as the necessary reforms and solutions.
