Brandix world first in eco-manufacture

 Sri Lanka’s Brandix has received recent global recognition for its Eco Centre in Seeduwa for Brandix Casualwear. The plant received Platinum rating in August 2008 under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System of the US Green Building Council (USGBC).

The rating is a third party certification programme and America’s benchmark for design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. It encourages and hastens global adoption of sustainable eco-friendly building and development practices. Brandix Casualwear Seeduwa is the Group’s lead manufacturing plant for Marks & Spencer.

The Brandix Green Factory’s score of 76 on the LEED scale of 85 points sets a new global standard for low energy consumption, water conservation, solid waste management and low carbon emissions. The score exceeds by 12 points the requirement for Platinum status and is the highest achieved by a Platinum rated manufacturing facility to date, and the first apparel factory in the world to take the LEED Platinum

The Brandix Casualwear Green Factory from inception has amply demonstrated the Group’s commitment to this global standard and more. This Eco Centre has reduced carbon emissions by 80%, an energy saving of 46%, reduced water consumption by 58% and zero solid waste to landfill; eco-friendly indicators unmatched by any re-designed Green Plant in the world as yet.
