Energypac has invested around 7 crores in saving rivers and carrying out river-cleaning works in the area surrounding their G-Gas plant located in Dacope, Khulna.

Energypac has cleaned up a portion of the river around the G-Gas Mother Plant area of Dacop,  Khulna region on the occasion of World Rivers Day, celebrated on September 26  as part of their signature CSR activity ‘River is my mother’ with a view to doing their bit to save rivers from extinction, according to a press release.

Despite the fact that our country is a riverine land, around 435 rivers in our country are in the death throes, among these, the life of almost 50-80 rivers are in jeopardy. 

These rivers are important means of livelihood for innumerable people, so ruining rivers means ruining the livelihood of so many people. Realizing this fact, Energypac has taken the initiative to clean up rivers. 

Humayun Rashid, managing director of Energypac, said: “If we cannot save our rivers, we will have to face serious consequences. Many of our rivers have already died. In this situation, Energypac as a socially responsible business entity has taken several initiatives so that we could restore the lost charm of our rivers and save the ecosystem.”

Energypac has invested around 7 crores in saving rivers and carrying out river-cleaning works in the area surrounding their G-Gas plant located in Dacope, Khulna. 

This initiative has created employment opportunities, and more than 250 people are involved in this endeavour. 

Beginning in 2017, approximately 1 metric ton of garbage has been extracted from the river areas. 

Meanwhile, Energypac has been conducting awareness campaigns on a regular basis to make people realize the significance of rivers.
