RSF won Climate Awards 2012

RSF's Niaz Rahim said the corporate sector has a duty to develop the country. “We set up the RSF to take solar energy to every house of the country out of our social responsibility.” He said the RSF is a social business and all of its profit is reinvested in the company. Md Riyadh Ali said it is very important to preserve butterflies to fight climate change impacts, as they keep the trees healthy. He also said he took up the initiative as it is a green business.
