A HABITAT RESTORATION PROJECT-#BePlanetWorthy- FOR A GREENER FUTURE
Distribution of Guava Plants Among North Sails Employees
With the prime objective of growing and protecting habitats within a scope of land that is 100 times that of the area occupied by North Sails for building and infrastructure, the company initiated #BePlanetWorthy – a habitat restoration project.
As such the third project under the #BePlanetWorthy initiative was recently concluded at North Manufacturing, with the distribution of around 1,200 guava plants were distributed among employees. The project was well-received by the team at North Sails, as it played a key role in educating team members on the importance of habitat restoration and sustainability.
The project was initiated by Tharushi Rajapaksha young graduate, who – having joined North Sails recently – is now supporting the sustainability arm of the company. Tharushi graduated from the University of Kelaniya with a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Conservation and Management. “We always place a great deal of emphasis in fulfilling our duties as a responsible corporate citizen. Hence, we believe that doing our part to safeguard the planet is of utmost significance. This project was commenced as part of the company’s sustainability agenda, through which we have conducted similar projects in the past as well,” said Tharushi sharing her thoughts.
#BePlanetWorthy commenced with the plantation of 1,000 Kumbuk Plants along the Southern Expressway, followed by another project to plant 60 Coconut Plants at Weheragama Vidyalaya in Ampara. This habitat restoration’ programme will be continued with the execution of more plantation and reforestation programmes. Furthermore, North Manufacturing has already covered 82.42% of area from out of the total land area that is utilized by North Sails.
Tharushi further noted that North Sails ethos upholds the philosophy of operating in a manner which minimizes its environmental impact. “We highly regard the principles of environmental preservation, while continuously innovating to improve on our sustainability initiatives. Humans are all but a small part of earth, and it is our duty to safeguard it so that generations to come, can harness nature’s gifts to mankind.”
Ultimately, North Sails aims to achieve a 1:100 Habitat Restoration ratio by 2023, while continuing to journey on as an organization that supports to protect Mother Earth.
