From plantation management and manufacturing to packaging and waste management, a significant, integrated component is the minimisation of potential impact on the ecosystem. Lalan's focus on carbon trading is aligned with both Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and Voluntary Carbon Standard (VCS) methods, internationally recognised mechanisms that establish criteria for validating, measuring, and monitoring carbon offset programmes.
While many companies in Sri Lanka use furnace oil, a fossil fuel, to power their factories, Lalan runs its manufacturing facilities primarily on renewable biomass energy, ensuring that its carbon emissions are significantly reduced. This use of biomass earns the group about 10,000 tonnes worth of carbon credits every year. Between 2006 and 2010, Lalan accumulated around 50,000 tonnes of carbon credits that are used to help other companies offset their carbon emission limits.
Carbon credits were applied to two additional plants in the Lalan network in the year 2010, and are expected to yield about 7,000 tonnes per annum once verifications are finalised.
Lalan is determined to grow its contribution to the ecosystem through the use of biomass and a heightened environmental consciousness.
