Pakistan is one of those many countries affected by environmental degradation.

Increasing carbon emissions, growing population, deforestation is causing deterioration in our environment. Air pollution, water waste, climate change, disasters, pest attacks, are putting a lot of pressure on the government. According to the global Environment Performance Index, Pakistan is the list of countries that need immediate to tackle this environment and climate caused stress.
Pak Mission Society is working actively for the last couple of years on different environment focused interventions to contribute to the Pakistan Vision of 2025 of the government in harmony with the Clean Green Pakistan campaign. Under this programme, the Saaf Mahool Project of PMS has introduced sustainable solid waste management practices in the low-income urban settlements of the Federal Capital, working on not just waste as a climate issue but on behavior change to promote environmental management by most distressed socio-economic classes of the community.
Under other different projects, PMS is promoting alternates of using plastic. Tree plantation activities are being introduced in different parts of the country while we keep ensuring a reduction in burning carbon fuels in our target communities.
