Global Rubber Industries Pvt. Ltd. (GRI) received the Award for Excellence in Sustainable Development at the recent Sri Lanka Presidential Awards 2015 ceremony.
GRI, which manufactures material handling, industrial, agriculture, and OTR tires, credits its "steadfast commitment to protect our environment through our policies, processes, practices, and products" for winning the award.
"The production plant of GRI generates energy through own sources by using Bio-Mass Steam Generation," says the company. "This environmentally friendly system contributes to a high percentage of energy out of the total power consumption of the plant.
"GRI also uses recycled material in packaging, etc. Stringent guidelines are used for sustainability reporting. Our Management Systems comply with ISO 14001:2004 -- the highest environmental standards. Waste rubber and tire scrap is exchanged with local reclaimed rubber producers for an end product equal to the value of the rubber scrap.
"All of these aspects of recycling, sustainability and environmentally friendly principles of GRI have helped us to win this prestigious award this year."
GRI is based in Sri Lanka and has sales offices and warehouses in the United States, Germany, France, Netherlands, and Australia. For more information, visit www.gritires.com.
