CCL the First Pharmaceutical in Pakistan to launch UN Sustainability Goals

CCL has a heritage of more than 50 years where they have contributed to the society, though their products, services and awareness activities. To take these contributions at a global scale, they have commenced their alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2030 by launching CCL “Hand in Hand” Sustainability initiatives across the organization on 23 August, 2022. 

This event was attended by their Head Office and Plant employees, as well as global teams from 22 Countries virtually. This historic launch means CCL will now work towards reducing its carbon footprint and continue its journey towards a healthier happier future. The UN SDG 3 (Good Health and Well Being) and 13 (Climate Action) have been chosen, that best encompass the value chain, manufacturing process and those whose lives CCL touches through its products and services. Their sustainability strategy is based on 5 pillars; Energy, Materials, Processes, Employees and the Community. Under these pillars, they have created teams that have devised actions for 2022 – 23.

At the Hand in Hand Kick-Off Event Kashif Sajjad Sheikh, Chairman CCL said,

“I take this opportunity to reach out to all our employees across the globe with these action plans and engage them for this great cause. Climate action is not going to affect our lives in the future, it already is affecting it through floods, natural calamities, Heat Waves etc. By continuing to work together and prioritising sustainability, we will do our part to ensure a greener tomorrow for future generations to come.”
