ISLAMABAD: Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has signed a three-year agreement with Messrs. Business Dynamics Pvt Ltd for conversion of airline's normal plastic packaging into biodegradable plastic.

The new plastic material used in packaging would biodegrade automatically after completing its useful life of 2.5-3 years.

PIA would now be certified as a green company by EPA as a zero pollution airline. This will reduce PIA's carbon footprint while leading to better waste management.

The Director Procurement & Logistics of PIA, Air Commodore Imran Akhtar signed the contract on behalf of PIA with Managing Director Business Dynamics Mr. Amir Younus at a ceremony held in Islamabad today.
