SriLankan Catering (Pvt) Ltd added to its reputation as a model of environmental conservation when it won the National Energy Efficiency Gold Award in the large-scale State sector category.

President Mahinda Rajapaksa presented the award to CEO SriLankan Catering, Sarath Fernando at the BMICH last week.

SriLankan Catering recently became one of a handful of airline caterers in the world to receive the ISO 14001:2004 certification for Best Environmental Practices.

CEO SriLankan Catering, Sarath Fernando said: “This award is a tribute to very precise planning, much hard work and brilliant execution on the part of hundreds of employees of SriLankan Catering, spearheaded by our Environmental Excellence Committee.

We have been raising awareness among our staff on the importance of conservation, and the results are now very clear for all to see.” SriLankan Catering reduced its electricity consumption by 10 percent and fuel usage by 40 percent during the last year, among a series of planned conservation efforts. The awards, which were presented for the first time, recognise the conservation efforts of organisations in five categories over a three-year period, as evaluated by the Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority.
