Dr. Sarath Amunugama, Minister of Science, Technology, Research, Skills Development & Vocational Training and Kandyan Heritage, was the Chief Guest at the 5th Green Building Awards Ceremony held at Ramada Hotel, organised by the Ceylon Institute of Builders. 

The CIOB promoted Green Building awareness, concepts, technologies and processes in Sri Lanka with the intention of creating a sustainably built environment for the future generations.  As a part of the Green Building mandate, CIOB recognises green features of buildings, construction materials and products, contractor companies and professionals, and rate their “Green Friendliness” under an internationally recognised green rating system and award such products, materials, companies and buildings accordingly. The Awards Ceremony recognised a number of Sri Lankan construction industry companies and their products, materials, and buildings, as well as their construction practices and the professionals that have been rated as ‘Green’, while awarding them the prestigious CIOB Green Mark.
