Pakistan has become the first country in South Asia to receive the LEED Platinum Certification by the US Green Building Council for a pharmaceutical plant.
The honor has been bestowed upon a pharmaceutical company called Getz Pharma Pvt. Ltd. as its new manufacturing facility ‘Astola’ has been awarded the First LEED Platinum Certification.
Achieving the highest LEED rating for this state-of-the-art facility is a testament to Getz Pharma’s commitment to playing its part in the preservation and protection of the environment as a corporate citizen.
Besides being the second-largest pharmaceutical company in the country, Getz Pharma’s Head Office is also WWF Green Office certified.
This year, the baton has been passed to Pakistan with the theme ‘ecosystem restoration’ while focusing more on creating a good relationship with nature.
