In an unprecedented move to ensure continued sustainable business operations, Hemas Holdings PLC has launched greater use of renewable energy as part of its 2030 Group Environmental Agenda.

The diversified business has initiated the process to install several rooftop solar photovoltaic systems from Hayleys Solar, the renewable energy arm of Fentons Ltd, at strategic locations where the Group’s major operations take place.

Once fully functional, Hemas Holdings’ use of solar power will offset electricity consumption by 25%, ensuring that its operations will have a minimized impact on the environment.
In addition to reducing the Group’s atmospheric carbon footprint and minimizing ozone layer depletion, adopting alternative energy sources has prepared Hemas Holdings to deal with potential fossil fuel shortages.

Hemas Holdings hopes to use its position as a changemaker to inspire other businesses to also switch to renewable energy sources, so that collectively, sustainable businesses become the new normal, minimizing the total environmental impact on Sri Lanka in his outfit.
