The Noritake team receives the Sri Lanka Corporate Health and Productivity Award

Noritake Lanka Porcelain Ltd. recently won two prestigious awards in recognition of its CSR efforts; one at the recently concluded JASTECA CSR/Sustainability Awards and the other at the Sri Lanka Corporate Health and Productivity Awards.

It received the JASTECA CSR/Sustainability 2018 Gold Award for its restoration work on the de-graded sites in Riverston in the Knuckles forest reserves in Matale, under the Carbon Foot Print Project. This project was recognised as the most environmentally sustainable and innovative activity of Noritake. This CSR Sustainability Award was introduced within the JASTECA Awards scheme to recognise organisations which contribute immensely to society.

Noritake also won a special award at the Sri Lanka Corporate Health and Productivity Awards 2019 in recognition of its ‘extraordinary efforts made to improve employee health and well-being’.

Noritake Lanka Porcelain Ltd. Deputy Chairman/Managing Director Hidenori Tanaka said, “We are truly humbled to have our efforts in creating a more sustainable environment and suitable work place recognised with such prestigious awards. We are committed to continuing our work and upholding Noritake’s legacy of benchmarking excellence, quality and production. We believe that integrating social, environmental and economic perspectives has boosted individual and personal competencies, security, trust and quality of life which generously amplify community goodwill.”

Having commenced operations in Sri Lanka in 1972 and thus representing the Noritake global family in this country, the company has evolved into a giant in the local porcelain industry.

Boasting of a remarkable heritage since its inception in 1904, Noritake has been producing the finest china found from around the world. Superior artistry and craftsmanship, attention to detail and uncompromising commitment to quality have made Noritake an internationally renowned trademark throughout the past century. Today, Noritake is recognised as a leader in tableware manufacturing and marketing with subsidiaries, factories and affiliates across the world in over 100 countries. 

As signatory to the United Nations, Noritake Lanka Porcelain Ltd. is already committed towards the UN Sustainable Integrated Ecosystem Management, which aims to sustain surrounding ecosystems to meet both ecological and human needs.

Noritake Lanka Porcelain Ltd. is currently working closely with schools, universities, communities, businesses and government and non-government organisations to promote a collaborative ecosystem management scheme. Noritake Lanka Porcelain Ltd. intends to ensure that ecosystems within the country will meet multiple objectives – from the provision of food, water and energy to biodiversity protection and job creation.
