Govt, opinion makers attend convention by Shell Pakistan on sustainable clean energy future
ISLAMABAD – In a convention held on 1st November 2018, at the Serena Hotel, Islamabad, Shell engaged with the Government, business leaders, diplomats and academia to share insights in energy transition and help shape discussion around building a sustainable energy future for Pakistan.

The Shell event hosted more than 50 thought leaders and dignitaries, including Dr. Ishrat Hussain, Adviser to PM on Institutional Reforms, Sher Afgan Khan, Additional Secretary, Ministry of Energy, Dr. Tanveer Ahmad Qureshi, Additional Secretary, Ministry of Energy and Ms. Uzma Adil, Chairperson OGRA.



The presentation was headlined by Roger Bounds, Vice President Strategy & Portfolio at Shell, who shared knowledge on energy for a changing world, success stories of policy actions for clean energy and suggestions for Pakistan. An LNG outlook was shared by Ajay Shah, Vice President Shell Energy Asia, highlighting that Pakistan is amongst the top 10 LNG importers in the world.

Pakistan is the 6th most populous country in the world, and increasing access to energy for its people goes hand-in-hand with economic activity and enabling opportunities for a growing population seeking to improve their standard of living.



“There is a dual challenge of how to transition to low-carbon energies to manage risks of climate change, while also extending the benefits of affordable and reliable energy to everyone in Pakistan,” said Haroon Rashid, Chief Executive and Managing Director of Shell Pakistan. “We believe this is an achievable ambition if we all work together, and today was a start to further this important goal.”

Earlier in the day, Roger Bounds, Ajay Shah, and Haroon Rashid also held meetings with Shibli Faraz, Leader of the House, Senate, and Uzma Adil, Chairperson OGRA and discussed Shell’s business interests in Pakistan.
