ACCA and WWF will host the Green Economy Forum 2012 on June 21, 2012 in Karachi. The high profile event will encompass panel discussion on green economy followed by the ACCA-WWF Pakistan Environmental Reporting Award Ceremony (PERA).
As world leaders share viewpoints at the RIO+20, the ACCA-WWF Green Economy Forum Pakistan 2012 will look at the implementation of strategies and global agendas to the environmental and sustainability practices in Pakistan. The discussion will be focused on crises in climate, biodiversity, fuel, food, water and the financial system we witness today. It is clear that a new economic system needs to be developed to avoid large scale irreversible disasters – an economic system that will help alleviate the numerous risks posed by the crises noted above, as well as provide a number of opportunities for growth and prosperity.
