PARCO won the first prize at “Living The Global Compact Best Practices Sustainability Awards 2022″ in the National Enterprise Category, for the ninth consecutive time during the SDGs Pakistan Summit 2023 organized by Global Compact Network Pakistan. The process of selection involved an in-depth evaluation by multi-disciplinary local and foreign jury members, who assessed the performance of companies in each of the four areas of the UN Global Compact, i.e. Human Rights, Environment, Labor and Transparency. Mr. Nadeem Ajwad Chishti, Head of External Affairs and CSR, received the award on behalf of PARCO at the prestigious ceremony.
