Hayleys Business Solutions International (Pvt) Limited (HBSI) became the first BPO company in the country to obtain CarbonNeutralR certification. This achievement, unique in Sri Lanka's business process outsourcing services industry, was earned after a focused effort by HBSI to adopt practices that reduce or eliminate greenhouse gas emissions.

The certificate was awarded by The CarbonNeutral Company, a world-leading provider of carbon reduction solutions. "HBSI has reduced and offset its CO2 emissions to net zero in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol. As a result, we are Sri Lanka's first and only CarbonNeutralR certified BPO Company, as verified by an independent organisation," Managing Director - Hayleys Business Solutions Ltd, Dr. Arul Sivagananathan said in a media statement issued by the company.

The certification makes a clear and credible statement about the action HBSI has taken on climate change and is expected to meet growing demand for climate friendly solutions, it said. "We are confident that this move will go a long way in enhancing the competitiveness of our service offering in local and international markets.

Clients of Hayleys Business Solutions International stand to benefit immensely from the work they outsource being carbon neutral. This certification plays a decisive role towards branding Sri Lanka as a sustainable outsourcing destination", Hayleys Group Chairman Mr. Mohan Pandithage said.
