To support a thriving plant, MAS has derived a sustainability goal to restore 100 times the space we occupy by 2025. On the way to this journey Silueta joined hands with Rainforest Rescue International (RRI) to restore and conserve 20 acres of highly threatened rainforest habitats by creating a bio link between Sinharaja World Heritage forest reserve and Kanneliya forest reserve.
An international day to celebrate freshwater was recommended at the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro. World Water Day is an international observance and an opportunity to learn more about water related issues, be inspired to tell others and take action to make a difference.
Silueta team Sustainability celebrated the World Water Day at Dekatana Primary School. More than 800 students were made aware on the importance of water & possible methods to conserve this scarce resource. A pedal tap system was introduced to the newly constructed water supply system following a tree planting session.
Silueta has diverted 90% of its generated waste from landfill by Reusing (Cartoons and Tissue Balls), Recycling (Aluminium Chips, Cardboard and Polythene), Energy Recovering (Laminated foam off-cuts) and Upcycling (Foam waste) to protect the environment while gaining the cost benefits.
Prioritizing human capital has always been paramount to Silueta. To encourage the emergence of future leaders, Silueta has committed to developing the youth of the local community, through the establishment of Development & Leadership Camps for school prefects and monitors at local schools such as Bomiriya Central College and Dekatana Primary School, as well as providing books and other study essentials to try to reduce the number of school dropouts among underprivileged children in the area.
