Jabbor Kayumov, CEO and MD of Ncell, emphasized the significance of planting trees, stating, “I am of the belief that there are 3 important things in our lives: i) build a house, ii) raise a child, and iii) plant a tree. I am personally privileged and honored to be a part of this great initiative for a cleaner, greener city.” He further underscored Ncell’s commitment to environmental responsibility, part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Net-Zero carbon commitments.
