Sustainability

Sustainability genuinely penetrates our core operations. As a socially conscious corporate, we endorse the practice of ‘hands on rather than hand outs’ – an approach where interactions with our stakeholders promote valid discourse and give light to issues. We aim to cement our growing role of leadership in corporate sustainability in our vision of becoming Sri Lanka’s corporate inspiration.

At Hayleys, caring for the Environment is inbuilt in our ethos; it is made up of a host of small, simple and inexpensive ways to much more elaborate steps that have stretched across its network of companies in its 132 years history.

Our efforts have been two pronged. One is to proactively design and manufacture products that protect the environment and second to minimize the impact of our activities. Whilst being conscious of the fact that profit is the raison d’être of business, we are mindful that sustainable profit does not happen in isolation of our People and our Planet. Our efforts to minimize are challenging as a majority of our businesses are in manufacturing. With manufacturing facilities located in Thailand & Indonesia our responsibility is not confined to Sri Lanka and extends across Asia.

To safeguard our environment we also take measures to collect all used CFL’s in order to extract the mercury for recycling thus, making sure the environment is not harmed in any way. We are happy that we associate ourselves with a company that has concern for the environment and consumers. Today Philips markets the safest lighting products/solutions in this country which is endorsed with independent international certifications to prove its superiority.

With the need to combat climate change made urgent over the recent years we are mindful of the need to enhance our R&D in environmental protection products whilst intensifying our efforts to minimize.

We take pride in our diverse array of eco-friendly products & services, ranging from activated carbon, coir fiber pith, horticulture products, and our in-house R&D which has pioneered many turnkey solutions for the purification of gases, air and liquids. Not satisfied with merely complying with environmental regulation, we are increasingly seeking ISO and other accreditations from reputed bodies.
