With the consequences of global warming and climate change becoming
apparent, carbon and environmental management have moved up the
corporate agenda. This is driven by a combination of actual (and
threatened) regulation, consumer pressure and an underlying desire to

"At a time when Sri Lanka is looking at accelerating her development,
it is imperative that we not only maximize the potential of our
beautiful and bountiful environment but also protect it for our future
As Sri Lanka looks to develop into a hub of ethical manufacturing and
eco tourism, we need to equip our local businesses to take advantage of
our huge carbon potential. Our companies and our products will need to
be aware of their carbon impact in order to compete in the new Green
Economy", said Subramaniam Eassuwaran founder directors of the Carbon
Consulting Company (CCC).
With a strong mix of both international expertise and the most
prominent Sri Lankan minds, CCC was formed by two young entrepreneurs,
Subramaniam Eassuwaran (Deputy Chairman of Eswaran Brothers Exports) and
Fazal Fausz (Managing Director of Rainco Pvt Ltd), under the guidance of
Nobel Laureate, Prof. Mohan Munasinghe.
Prof. Munasinghe, a director of CCC, will be actively involved in
advising companies on how best to reduce carbon emissions and implement
world class environmental management strategies.
CCC has formed a strategic alliance with the Carbon Neutral Company (CNC)
of UK, a leading provider of carbon reduction solutions. They have been
appointed as a reseller of carbon credits as well as a third party
verifier. CCC is also accredited by the UK Government's Carbon Trust as
a product "Footprint Expert". The Managing Director of CNC Jonathan
Shopley will be in Sri Lanka in the first week of October to address a
select gathering of CEOs on the theme; "The Carbon Phenomenon : Adding
Business Value" at a forum organised by the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce.
"CCC has been created with the sole purpose of helping organisations
reduce their environmental impact and maximize their CSR and marketing
We have seen many industry leaders take the first steps towards
making this happen and our mission is to help these leaders develop the
knowledge base and expertise required for the coming low carbon
economy", said Eassuwaren.
We don't believe in using carbon credits as a license to pollute. We
also help clients devise strategies to reuse and recycle the waste and
we have brought emissions down by 20 percent in some cases, said Fausz.
CCC has also concurrently established the Conservation Carbon
Company. Conservation Carbon was established with the mandate to use
environmental finance mechanisms to help protect Sri Lanka's most
threatened ecosystems. Dr. Ranil Senanayaka, a founder, is an ecologist.
With scientific minds and concerned businessmen joining hands, both
companies intend making a difference to the environment and making a
positive impact on the country.
