The secret of INSEE Ecocycle’s success has been our passionate commitment to responsibly manage the use of natural resources through its reusage and renewal while minimizing the impact of our operations on the environment. We are indeed proud of our achievements in improving industrial environmental footprints across a wide range of industries in Sri Lanka.
Our sustainability and overall corporate objectives are based on a three-pronged accountability strategy of Economic Responsibility, Environmental Responsibility and Social Responsibility, aligning with the United Nations sustainable development goal of ‘sustainable consumption and production’. In other words, development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Sustainable Solution to Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)
Since 2011, Ecocycle has implemented many methods to support the national MSW issue via public private partnership providing a solution to segregated non-recyclable polythene and plastics waste material.
Involvement in National Waste Management Initiatives
Ecocycle joins hands with the government in national level waste management initiatives as the nation’s sustainable waste solution provider.
Given below are some of these initiatives.
- National E- waste collection week
- Beach clean up
- National waste pen and toothbrushes collection program
Continuing in its effort to provide medical and eye care facilities to under-privileged elders, INSEE Ecocycle Lanka conducted a medical and eye-care camp in collaboration with HelpAge at Katunayake BOI Zone management processing plant premises for the benefit of over 125 needy people including the waste pickers at the Material Receiving Centre (MRC) and the factory workers.
Helping Rural Communities through Biomass Sourcing
Ecocycle works to optimize supply chains and provide solutions through partnerships that explore circular economy solutions. For example, rice husk was considered a waste until Ecocycle developed a solution for it, resulting in the rural communities of Anuradhapura, Kekirawa, and Puttalam being benefited by the rising demand for rice husks for Ecocycle’s operations.
