ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Tuesday that an increase in the production of clean energy was among top government’s priorities.
“Production of clean energy would protect the environment and ensure proper utilisation of natural resources,” the prime minister said while talking to Amory Bloch Lovins and Ethan Paul Wampler, experts from a prominent US clean energy organisation, Rocky Mountain Institute.
Advisers to PM Muhammad Shahzad Arbab, Malik Amin Aslam, special assistant Nadeem Babar and others were also present during the meeting.
The US experts offered their technical expertise in the formulation of environment-friendly policies and legislation.
The prime minister said that their technical experience would be welcomed for the formulation of “green building laws” for the Naya Pakistan Housing Programme, so that environment-friendly buildings and proper usage of energy could be ensured.
