The development of gas supply to the whole country has a great effect on the protection of the environment, the official added. He urged optimizing gas consumption and controlling the waste gases inside and outside the companies.
Celebrating World Environment Day, Araqi noted that everybody has a responsibility to understand the importance of his or her relationship with the nature.
The official urged NIGC officials and staff to do their best to avoid polluting nature.
World Environment Day aims to inspire more people than ever before to take action to prevent the growing strain on planet Earth’s natural systems from reaching the breaking point. The 2016 theme highlights the fight against the illegal trade in wildlife, which erodes precious biodiversity and threatens the survival of elephants, rhinos and tigers, as well as many other species. It also undermines our economies, communities and security.
