CEO of Hemas Holdings Steven Enderby symbolically plants a tree in his office at Braybrooke Place, Colombo 02.

The staff of Hemas Holdings PLC recently commemorated World Environment Day 2017 with Otara Gunawardena speaking on this year’s global theme ‘Connecting People to Nature’. Her inspiring address to the audience was based on her personal experience on environmental issues Sri Lanka faces in the current context.

She spoke of her strong sense of patriotism in declaring herself primarily as a Sri Lankan irrespective of all the labels she has been associated with. She described the sense of worth in being called a Sri Lankan and hastened to emphasise the plight of the environment, which has taken a toll on the natural beauty and landscape of this country.

Hemas parallely commemorated the day with special events organised at all locations across the Group. An inspiring speech made by a staff member at each location where a tree was also planted to mark World Environment Day 2017. All members of Hemas staff took a solemn pledge to immediately refrain from using plastic lunch sheets.
