About this training

Like anywhere else, environmental problems are a growing concern in Pakistan. You might have noticed that the summers are getting hotter; that the rains are coming in stronger; and the pollution is even thicker. A few years ago, in fact, there were a lot of headlines about Pakistan’s water issue. Those headlines might have faded, and been replaced by other concerns, but the problem continues.

Following from this, consumers, workers, and businesses have together become concerned about their actions. Consumers want to buy from environmentally-responsible companies, and workers want to work for such companies. This training is one step in solving that concern. In this training, you will learn how your individual actions can affect the environment at a macro level, what some of Pakistan’s major environmental problems are, and how you can cut down on your personal environmental footprint.
