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.”
