its business units.

The occasion was also used to unveil a new logo and theme for the
Group's CSR initiatives - 'Care for Water: Care for Women' - and the
launch of a poster campaign advocating water conservation. "As a
business group that has made Water its principal community initiative,
we take the water issues faced by our associates, our country and the
world at large very seriously," Brandix CSR Head Anusha Alles said.
"We estimate that eliminating waste alone could result in a saving of
five litres of water per day per associate, leading to an overall saving
of over 100,000 litres of water per day," he said
Brandix Environmental and Energy Management Head Iresha Somarathna
said the Group would support this conservation effort by investing in
new economical toilet flushing systems, water recycling plants and rain
water harvesting systems at all factories.
"The ultimate objective is to ensure that every drop is used, and all
wastage is eliminated," Somarathna said.
