ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) - Pakistan International Airlines has signed a three-year agreement with Ms. Business Dynamics Pvt. Ltd. to convert its normal plastic packaging into biodegradable plastic.

The new plastic material used in packaging will biodegrade automatically after a useful lifespan of 2.5-3 years.

PIA will now be certified as a green company by Environmental Protection Agency for being a zero pollution airline. This will reduce PIA's carbon footprint while leading to better waste management.

Air Commodore Imran Akhtar, Director Procurement & Logistics of PIA, signed the contract on behalf of PIA with Managing Director Business Dynamics Mr. Amir Younus at a ceremony held in Islamabad on Monday.
