INSEE Cement (Siam City Cement (Lanka) Ltd) and INSEE Ecocycle have won awards at the Presidential Environment Awards 2018 in Sri Lanka. The company has stated that these awards have cemented its dedication to the environment, as a company engaged in the chemical industry and waste management sectors.

The awards were presented by the Central Environment Authority (CEA). A silver award was presented for INSEE Ecocycle, a fully-owned subsidiary company of Siam City Cement that is engaged in waste management. INSEE Cement’s contribution to the green production process at the company’s manufacturing plant in Puttalam gained a bronze award.

CEA’s annual awards reward both service sector industries and individuals for their contribution to conserving the environment.

“This is a great milestone for us,” said Nandana Ekanayake, CEO of INSEE Cement Sri Lanka. “It reinforces our focus on contributing to uplifting the environment and taking responsibility for maintaining sustainability. We demonstrated our strategies to safeguard and protect the environment we live in by using green technology for our operations. Our Puttalam plant is where we can showcase our sustainable development process, which contributes to energy saving, carbon footprint, and occupational health.”

“We take great pride in the awards INSEE Ecocycle has won over the years, which recognise our eco-friendly stance, particularly when it comes to waste management processes,” said Sanjeewa Chulakumara, Director of INSEE Ecocycle. “INSEE Ecocycle is now established as an independent company, which diversified its business portfolio to provide non-kiln based waste management solutions, such as laboratory services, training and consultancy, industrial cleaning, specialised logistics service, environmental remediation, emergency response services, e-waste disposal, and many more, contributing towards a waste-free country.”

The company’s objective is to build brighter futures in Sri Lanka, while contributing meaningfully to the government’s aim to launch an economically viable green era.
