BMICH celebrates World Environment Day

The BMICH celebrated World Environment Day by planting a variety of saplings on the premises including Hal plants.

Hal – Vateria Copallifera is endemic to Sri Lanka and is powdered and used to make various authentic Sri Lankan food such as Halapa, Pittu, Thalapa, Roti etc.

“We are delighted to have celebrated the World Environment Day as we continuously practice eco-friendly concepts in an urban forest and we operate an in-house compost pile using the “Takakura” method to manage the daily garbage collected on the premises and we look forward to organic agriculture projects in the premises as well,” said BMICH Chief Executive Sunil Dissanayake.

Set in a sprawling site, with 15 well-laid out and spacious car parks that can accommodate 3000 vehicles at a given time, and well-maintained landscaped gardens, BMICH is Sri Lanka’s largest and Asia’s very first purpose-built convention centre with ultra-modern facilities.

World Environment Day is celebrated to spread awareness about protecting and restoring our planet. Being this year’s theme “Only One Earth”, we need to work collectively towards building the comfort of the planet.

BMICH won the South Asian Travel Award (SATA) Gold in 2016, Silver in 2017, and Gold again in 2018 and 2019. In 2016, the BMICH also won the Quality ERA Geneva Gold Award, Platinum Award in 2017& the BWIO USA Platinum Award in 2020.
