Sri Lanka’s ‘GREENEST’ Apparel Factory Reinforces Its Commitment To Sustainability

The county’s iconic green factory – the Hirdaramani Group’s Mihila Factory, recently re-certified itself as having completely offset it entire operational carbon footprint. 

Asia’s FIRST CarbonNeutral® Apparel Manufacturer, and the FIRST in Sri Lanka to continually maintain its CarbonNeutral® status over 3 years, the Mihila Factory continues to drive environmental sustainability as a vital aspect of its business operations.

“Mihila was set-up to fulfill the Hirdaramani Group’s vision of demonstrating that manufacturing could be carried out in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner” says Chamara De Silva – General Manger of the Mihila Factory.

 “Building great partnerships are what we are about” comments Sanith de S. Wijeyeratne, the Chief Executive Officer of The Carbon Consulting Company. 

“Unlike the lip service claims by many in industry today, correcting and mitigating the environmental impacts created through industry is not achieved overnight. It requires significant commitment from all levels of the company – from Senior Management down to floor level technicians.  Building this shared vision of environmental concern takes time and concerted effort. And we at CCC are proud to have been able to work with the dynamic team at Mihila over the past 3 years , to help them reach and maintain their CarbonNeutral® status and also becoming the ONLY Apparel Factory in the country to do so.”

CCC also provides mitigation options, facilitates the purchase of ethical Carbon Offsets and consults on Corporate Sustainability Management Strategies such as Carbon, Water, Waste and Energy Management to ensure that corporates are able to take accurate stock of the impact of their operations on the environment.
