As many as 64 renowned companies were conferred the 10th Annual Environment Excellence Awards 2013 at an award ceremony held at the local hotel in Karachi Pakistan. Pakistan-based leading manufacturer and exporter of home textiles Al-Rahim Textile Industries showed outstanding performance in this competition and unanimously selected by independent award jury for 10th Annual Environment Excellence Awards 2013. Al-Rahim Textile Industries was awarded by National Forum for Environment & Health (NFEH) because of running ‘Healthy Environment for All (HEA)’ program within organization, and introducing a range of ecofriendly terry towels in the international market.

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 Shoib Siddiqui, and Consul General Yamen Dr. Ikhtiar Baig, were the chief guests on the occasion. Supported by United Nation Environment Program, the environment excellence awards are annually organized by NFEH, Publicity Channel, and Energy Update Pakistan.

Highlighting the significance of environment-friendly business practices, Mr. Faisal Saya CEO Al-Rahim Textile Industries said that in the modern period, sustainability tends to be an essence of industrial goodness and business excellence, and being a successful business organization we get worldwide recognition due to our environmental and ecological considerations. ‘Long past are the days when human goodness was all belonged to the humans only, while machines and pieces of industrial equipment ruled the roost at the cost of irrecoverable environmental degradation and never-ending contamination.

Yesterday, this was the natural environment that fell prey to the human greed, and in a complete contrast today has given rise to those of the business practices and industrial operations that fully respect the natural surroundings, and modify rest of the commercial activities in accordance with social and environmental obligations’, Faisal Saya said.

In his speech of welcome, Chairman NFEH Dr. Kaiser Waheed highlighted the overall mission and commitment of National Forum for Environment & Health (NFEH) towards increasing a widespread sense of environmental responsibility within business communities in the country. Speaking on the subject of ‘A Successful Journey for Sustainable Development’, President NFEH M.
