Trelleborg Lanka Ltd. continued its winning streak at the prestigious Presidential Environmental Awards with its contribution towards promoting green practices and environmental sustainability. 

At the 2018 awards ceremony, Trelleborg Lanka won a Bronze award showcasing top-level environmental sustainability practices and exceptional contribution towards driving organisational performance through sound environmental and green management practices. 

The organisation received a Merit award in 2017, hence this is the second consecutive year in which the company has been consistently recognised for its contribution to environment. 

Organised by the Central Environmental Authority (CEA), the Presidential Environmental Awards is held to appreciate the eagerness of industries, service sector organisations and individuals towards environmental conservation and protection, while sustaining their active involvement in the long run for a clean and green Sri Lanka. The awards ceremony was held at the BMICH under the patronage of the President. 

Acknowledging the award, Trelleborg Lanka Ltd. Managing Director Sanjay Melvani said: “At Trelleborg we believe that the benefits of our solutions stretch beyond functionality and business performance. Whenever possible they should also contribute to better sustainability. In fact, many of our solutions protect the environment and people, as well as infrastructure and assets. They reduce environmental impact by saving energy, cutting emissions and protecting the soil. They make people’s lives quieter and more comfortable. In Sri Lanka, as the largest solid tyre manufacturing facility in Trelleborg Wheel Systems, there is no exception, we are committed to maintaining highest standards on environmental sustainability and sound green management practices.”
