Sri Lanka’s leading provider of sustainability consulting services –The Carbon Consulting Company,
marked the World Environment Day 2015 by launching a new paradigm in the corporate sustainability.
The event was graced by Regional Representative of The CarbonNeutral Company Ms. Vivian Frost and
Sanith de S. Wijeyeratne CEO of The Carbon Consulting Company (CCC) and other corporates who
champion a sustainable approach.
“The Carbon Consulting Company, was set up to provide companies and organisations in the region
access to world standard consulting and sustainability advisory services,” say CEO of The Carbon
Consulting Company (CCC) Sanith de S. Wijeyeratne. “As our name connotes, we were initially focused
on helping companies track and reduce their carbon emissions, and to also encourage companies to
make a positive impact by becoming certified asCarbon Neutral. However, we soon expanded our
consulting services to cover many other sustainability aspects such as water, biodiversity, waste and
energy. Throughout this process, we have been guided and encouraged by the advice and support of our
principal international partner, The CarbonNeutral Company of the UK. Today we find that many
companies are seeking to actively align the environmental and social sustainability initiatives to their own
broader corporate agendas. And CCC is proud to announce that it is now capable of helping clients
create such engagement opportunities though the robust and proven mechanism of carbon finance, with
the help of The CarbonNeutral Company’s innovative framework – Sustainable Impacts.
Introducing this new methodology to a gathering of corporate and sustainability leaders, the Regional
Representative of The CarbonNeutral Company Ms. Vivian Frost said “We have seen an increasing
interest from our clients in aligning their carbon management and environmental programmes with
additional business objectives, such as community development, stakeholder engagement and building
supply chain resilience. Our Sustainable Impacts framework is a way to articulate the additional benefits
that carbon finance projects deliver. Carbon finance provides the measuring, monitoring and reporting
processes to ensure carbon emission reductions are delivered, and the Sustainable Impacts framework
evaluates the further sustainable development benefits for communities and the environment, such as
health and wellbeing, water stewardship, financial security and biodiversity protection. As I meet Carbon
Consulting Company’s clients throughout the country, I’m pleased to be able to introduce the concept of
Sustainable Impacts and explain the role it plays in their own carbon management programmes”.
