Sri Lankan diversified business group, Maliban has invested in broadening its Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) framework.

These efforts have brought the organisation global recognition, with regard to its eco-friendly manufacturing processes, with the Maliban Group of Companies now having received Carbon Footprint Certification for quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions, from the Sri Lanka Climate Fund.

The Group companies that have received Carbon Footprint Certification include Maliban Biscuit Manufactories, Maliban Milk Products, Maliban Dairy and Agri Products, Wonder Pak, Golden Bake, and Little Lion Associates.

“From our inception, sustainability and responsible business have been part of our ethos,” said Managing Director of the Maliban Group, Ms. Kumudika Fernando.

“In our endeavour to always be responsible and sustainable, we have also under taken the plantation of over 300 acres of land, which no doubt provides us with a significant number of carbon credits, helping us to materially and measurably reduce our carbon footprint,” she said. The Sri Lanka Climate Fund’s accredited certification applies to the Maliban Group and all of its subsidiaries.

Group CEO, Maliban Group, Ravi Jayawardena said, “Achieving ISO 14064-1:2018 based Carbon Footprint Certification transcends the general expectations of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives, by setting and adopting emissions reduction strategies for improvement in environmental performance indicators, furthering our quest for excellence, while also creating a pathway for others in the industry to follow.”
