Sanith de S. Wijeyeratne, CEO Carbon Consulting Company receives the Global CSR Leadership Award in Mumbai.

Sanith de S. Wijeyeratne, CEO Carbon Consulting Company, has been conferred the prestigious Global CSR Leadership Award at the recent Global Awards ceremony hosted at the Taj Land End Convention Centre in Mumbai.

The Global CSR Excellence & Leadership Awards, held annually to mark World CSR Day, is part of an international two-day summit hosted by the World CSR Congress, which brings numerous CSR leaders across the globe, under one roof. The awards ceremony, which was held on the 18th February saw over 130 countries unite to celebrate leadership aimed at building a better society and a better world.

The theme of this year’s summit, ‘Profit for Purpose’, looked to Sustainability and CSR for Inclusive Growth, Reformation, Rehabilitation and Reintegration, Value Driven Social Change, and Green Economy for Progress and Development, among other key sub-themes. The forum operates on the key premise of how leadership can make a difference; where leaders believe in the value of CSR and create a common thread uniting nations and people who pursue CSR more responsibly and view it as a tool to the development of the future.

The conferring of the Award is an intensely researched process undertaken by a carefully selected research cell, who then produce a shortlist of trailblazers recognised for their extraordinary achievements in sustainability and championing environmental causes. This list is then reviewed by a Jury comprising senior professionals from across the globe.

The award is a landmark achievement for Sri Lanka, setting a benchmark for leadership within the sphere of sustainability, value driven CSR and its positive impacts on society. Commenting on his award, Sanith de S. Wijeyeratne said, "To be sought out and recognised for this achievement is an absolute honour. I was conferred this award because of the talented and highly skilled team at the Carbon Consulting Company that is equally passionate about making a positive impact on our environment as we strive towards quelling climate change and transforming our reality. My sincere appreciation to them and to the dynamic Board of Directors of CCC for their unstinted support and guidance. I would also like to extend my appreciation towards The World CSR Congress for their efforts in drawing and uniting leaders from across the globe to collectively work towards making a difference to our communities and planet".
