Green distribution centre

 

We redesigned our Distribution Center (DC) so it would be more environmentally friendly, helping us use less natural resources for our operations. The DC helped us reduce our costs by Rs. 40 million by offering the following unique features - 

  • Powered using only solar energy (215 solar cells), helping us save the same amount of energy 330 households would use in a year.
  • Illuminated 100% by 40 sky lights, helping us save the same amount of energy 125 households would use in a year.
  • Ventilated only via natural ventilators, helping us save the same amount of energy 228 households would use in a year.
  • The three initiatives above helped us reduce CO2 emissions by 47 tonnes and diesel consumption by 20%.

Our green distribution centre won us a gold rating in 2015 by the Green Building Council of Sri Lanka.
