Green jobs award 2009

Recognizing commitment as much as pioneering courage displayed in launching an ambitious multi million rupee carbon neutral bio mass boiler to replace furnace oil fired boilers, the Ministry of Environment & Natural Resources of Sri Lanka presented its ‘Green Jobs’ award under the category of Climate Change to Unilever Sri Lanka on 5th June to mark World Environment Day.

After much evaluation for a more environmentally friendly renewable energy source, the bio mass boiler was selected as the best option. This bio mass boiler establishes another milestone in Unilever Sri Lanka’s 70 year manufacturing presence, a manifestation of USL’s credo : “doing well by doing good”. The bio mass boiler converts 85% of the energy used at USL to ‘green’ energy.
