KARACHI — Sindh Governor Imran Ismail Tuesday while launching the "CO2 Smart Executive Club" at NED University of Engineering and Technology, termed it as welcome move in order to have an oxygen-friendly environment.

"There are multiple issues pertaining to climate change and global warming; and it is a unique initiative, very well designed to show the effects of the plantation in real time," he explained.

He put emphasis upon the Clean and Green Pakistan initiative of the present government to reduce the adverse climate change effects on multiple fronts in the country.

He said that the subject matter and the themes covered were of prime significance and also very close to the endeavors of the government. The generation and sharing of knowledge on this count are definitely going to improve the prospects of the country.

"I feel that it is the true responsibility of a University to engage itself in civil society with the intention of social and economic service," the Governor said.

Earlier, the Governor was informed that Geo-tagging technology would be ensured to keep a watch on the saplings planted under "The carbon dioxide smart Executive club."

The smart executive club is working on devising a method under Geo-tagging technology to estimate the proportion of oxygen and carbon dioxide in different areas of the city and to act accordingly by planting more saplings in carbon dioxide condensed areas to ensure oxygen-friendly environment.
