We are one of the leaders of the Hiniduma Conservation Carbon Programme - which aims at planting over 90 species of trees, in order to strengthen Sri Lankan biodiversity. Situated in the southwest of Sri Lanka, the Hiniduma rainforest is one of the last pristine rainforests remaining in the country, after the encroachment of agricultural communities in the area.
A collaboration with the Conservation Carbon Company (CCC), Rainforest Rescue International (RRI), and local farmers, the project began with 10.88ha. of rainforest land with a goal of eventually expanding to 20,000ha. of virgin rainforest. Ultimately, the Hiniduma Conservation Carbon Programme will not only support biodiversity but will also have a positive impact on up to 1,500 farming families.
To support the project, we bear the cost of every tree planted. We plant one tree for every 100 packs of Olinda Green Tea sold, steadily realizing our vision of a clean, green, and healthy ecosystem in the southwest of Sri Lanka.
Guided by Love and Courage, we value our people as essential to our business. We empower them to achieve their dreams through programs focusing on education, welfare, and skill enhancement.
Water while being a foundation resource to our business, is also a diminishing one and we are committed to ensuring that our water usage does not impact the world adversely.
