Hayleys Talawakelle Tea Estates wins ASRAS Awards

Setting another unprecedented benchmark in the tea industry, Hayleys Talawakelle Tea Estates PLC (TTEL) was presented with two Silver Awards at the recently concluded Asia Sustainability Reporting Awards (ASRA) 2019.

Hosted virtually from Singapore due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Awards Ceremony saw over 200 senior business leaders, sustainability partners, academia, trade associations and advocacy organisations attend the event via a virtual conference.

“The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is a reminder that businesses, governments and societies need to work together to build resilience into economies and industries so they are able to withstand any disruption – anticipated or not. The adoption of responsible environmental, social and governance practices has become essential to ensure businesses survive the volatile economic landscape of the future. As such transparency, disclosure and data-driven strategies have become integral – not just in how businesses are perceived but also in how they can thrive and survive into the future,” Hayleys Plantations Managing Director, Dr. Roshan Rajadurai said.

The virtual event saw TTEL presented with the Silver Awards for Asia’s Best Integrated Report and Asia’s Best Integrated Report Design.

“We are honoured to have been recognised among leading corporates in the Asian region for our transparency and procedural excellence. Sustainability reporting has become an integral tool in communicating how we manage our material economic, environmental and social impacts, and risks in order to capture fresh opportunities to enhance sustainability in our business,” TTEL Director/ CEO Senaka Alawattegama said.

The ASRA has continued to raise the bar for quality and authentic reporting, and has introduced healthy competition among corporates in Asia. The winners for the 2019 ceremony were selected from 461 entries received from 16 countries.

The Awards are open to all types and sizes of private, public and non-profit organisations in all sectors which produce a sustainability report or integrated report in Asia.
