Suren Cooke Agencies opens state-of-the-art carbon neutral facility

Suren Cooke Agencies recently unveiled their universally recognised, state-of-the-art, carbon neutral facility, aimed at neutralising the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. With this, they were awarded the Carbon Neutral Certification by the Sri Lanka Climate Fund.

Suren Cooke Agencies takes pride in neutralising most of their organisations’ carbon emission by their recycling initiative as opposed to solely buying Carbon Credits.

Besides its benefits to our environment, manufacturing these ‘Tamper Resistant Rodent Stations’ locally saves Foreign Exchange, creates job opportunities and supports SCA’S drive against plastic pollution.

Being South Asia’s first ISO 14064 accredited government organisation, the Sri Lanka Climate Fund, undertook the verification of the GHG inventory of Suren Cooke Agencies for the year 2018 in accordance with ISO14064-1:2006 Part 1, in order to present them with the Carbon Neutral Certification.

“When operating any business, it leaves behind a Carbon emission or footprint, which harms and damages the environment,” states Suren Cooke. “It is our duty to neutralise the impact caused. Our brand new facility has now achieved this, in being environmentally friendly, first and foremost.”

Presently, Suren Cooke Agencies is focusing on plastic pollution, and using a non-chemical alternative for Termites Control called Xterm, which is amongst one of their many projects undertaken to strengthen and maintain their carbon neutrality.“We hope to send a strong message to the public on the importance of protecting our environment. We manufacture our rodent bait stations using recycled plastic, obtained from our surroundings and our oceans. In closing Cooke stated, “This planet is a gift from God. Let’s protect it and leave it behind for our future generations.”
