Emission Reduction Initiatives

From plantation management and manufacturing to packaging and waste management, a significant, integrated component is the minimizing and/or mitigation of the possible impact on the ecosystem.


While many companies in Sri Lanka use furnace oil, a fossil fuel, to power their factories, Lalan runs its manufacturing facilities 100% on renewable biomass energy, ensuring that their 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.


Lalan is determined to grow its contribution to the ecosystem through the use of biomass and a heightened environmental consciousness.


FSC®

Lalan firmly believes that their very existence and long-term economic viability depend on the potential of forests to regenerate itself and grow in a way that is acceptable to society. Lalan is thus ethically committed to the institution of Sustainable Forest Management principles and practices and it also operates in conformity with the forest laws and regulations of the government of Sri Lanka.

The company's vision of long term Sustainable Forest Management has been motivated by its desire to have FSC® certification. They make every effort to be in conformity to the principles, criteria and indicators of the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®).

Water Purification and Recycling

Lalan has already established a pilot plant with a capacity of 15,000-meter cube per annum and is planning to establish another plant with a capacity of 450,000-meter cube per annum with the assistance of Asian Development bank.


Once this plant is fully established and is fine-tuned to suit the requirements of the manufacturing process, similar purification and recycling plants will be installed in all other manufacturing units of the Group.


Lalan is determined to grow its contribution to the ecosystem through the use of biomass and a heightened environmental consciousness.
