Prime Minister Imran Khan was the leader of the 1000 trees program in KPK. His efforts have helped to restore a large percentage of greenery in Pakistan. As part of his tenure, the Premiere also spoke about reducing taxes on electric vehicles. This was done to encourage people to shift to electric vehicles.

Many electric charging stations have also been installed since then. The landscape of Pakistan is slowly but surely becoming more sustainable. The latest development is only proof of that.
