The Carbon Consulting Company (CCC) recently received the award for the Best Company Providing Environmental Solutions, at the Middle-East Asia Leadership Summit and Awards 2017 ceremony held in Dubai. Sanith de S. Wijeyeratne the CEO of CCC was singled out as the inaugural speaker at the prestigious event that draws together leaders from across the region to honour their contribution towards the sustainable development and growth of industry in their respective communities.
The summit, hosted by the World Leadership Federation, is a platform for key influencers spanning diverse sectors to build their networks, share their experiences and expertise, and for their companies to be recognised for their contribution towards the development in the economic, social, educational and leadership spheres. The event also serves as an ideal forum to engage in the latest leadership trends and to create a dialogue amongst participants to exchange ideas in their respective fields of expertise. The awards criteria was based on innovation, performance and the impact these pioneers have displayed in 2016.
Speaking at the awards, Sanith recounted his experience in transforming the business model of the company from being a single solution provider to becoming known for its integrated solutions and sustainability based innovation. “We were forced to look at the value that we were able to create for our clients, in measureable means” says Sanith. “We were able to create a business model that enabled partners and stakeholders to tangibilise the business value in a manner appealing to a traditional business mindset, but which would still achieve the sustainability objectives that the company was formed to achieve. We are proud to have an accomplished team of in-house experts, as well as tap into the vast knowledge base of a pool of external consultants who possess diverse skill sets, all of whom are able to collaborate seamlessly in delivering environmental solutions combined with marketing and engagement creation tools”
“This award marks a key milestone in highlighting the strides Sri Lanka as a nation has taken in progressing towards the betterment of our environment and society” he further added. “The Carbon Consulting Company constantly seeks to raise the bar in terms of innovation, customer engagement and value creation, and our unique approach enables us to link with a broad range of industries to work together to compensate for our combined impact on the environment”.
