FFC Energy Limited & Neighboring Community

FFC Energy Limited (FFCEL) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Fauji Fertilizer Company Limited (FFC); Pakistan’s largest fertilizer manufacturer and a prestigious investment firm, was established with a grandeur vision to realize the dream of harnessing green & clean energy for the Nation.

Jhimpir, with a population of almost 40,000 residents, is a small town located around 55 km north of Karachi & close to the famous Keenjhar Lake. The community, lacking even the most basic necessities of life was surviving the scorching heat in a semi desert area with the little means it had. Unknown to many the strong winds of Jhampir Wind Corridor, bustling with the folklores of Noori Jam Tamachi & Indus Valley Civilization, carry the energy to provide over 40,000 MWs of electricity to the Country for eternity – a perfect case to explain the Renewable.

The hidden jewel of Jhimpir and the dream of FFC became a reality in 2012, after an eventful development journey spanning over six years, when the aerodynamic blades of thirty three (33) wind turbines at FFCEL Plantsite were moved by the rustling winds of Jhimpir,  generating 49,500 kWs of electricity for Pakistan – literally out of thin air.

FFCEL, following in the footsteps of its parent company FFC, remained committed for the uplifting and development of the underprivileged communities surrounding its power plant and share the benefits of its investment with the people of Jhimpir. A comprehensive CSR program for Jhimpir was launched in 2012 wherein a multidimensional approach was adopted towards addressing the basic needs of the community with meaningful programs in the field of health, education, poverty alleviation, community building and renewable energy.

The CSR interventions were planned in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and are summarizes below.

SDG # 5 – Gender Equality and Women Empowerment

  • FFCEL strongly upholds the importance of Women empowerment for community development and country’s sustainable progress. Jhimpir, being a remote site and under developed area, is not facilitated with institutes for women development and education.
  • Adhering to its philosophy towards Women upliftment, FFCEL plans to set-up a vocational center at it plantsite as another major CSR project. The idea is further supported by the availability of amenities at FFCEL plantsite which provides an ideal location for the proposed project.
