DIMO shines at ACCA Sri Lanka Sustainability Reporting Awards 2022

DIMO, a leading diversified conglomerate in Sri Lanka, was recognized as the Overall Runner Up as well as the Winner in the Conglomerates & Diversified category at the prestigious ACCA Sri Lanka Sustainability Reporting Awards 2022.

Gahanath Pandithage, Group Chief Executive Officer of DIMO shared his thoughts on the win. “This is a phenomenal achievement for the company, and as the perfect sustainability partner, we will always remain committed to fuelling the dreams and aspirations of all the communities we serve, by continuously creating sustainable solutions that have a positive impact on society, environment and the economy.”

It was observed by the judges of the ACCA Sri Lanka Sustainability Reporting Awards 2022 that DIMO’s 2021/2022 annual report is a testament to the company’s commitment to evolving, in tune with the requirement of sustainability. They also stated that the company’s desire to better its performance and be innovative in its reporting is clearly visible in the latest outstanding annual report.

Outlining the rational for recognizing DIMO as the winner in the Conglomerates & Diversified category, the judges also noted that the company made a significant shift in its business direction towards agricultural solutions to improve economic sustainability and address the national priority of food security.

This change is evident in the company’s evolved operations, including three Agri techno parks dedicated to research and development, continuous farmer education, and the production of organic fertilizer while catering to every aspect in the agriculture value chain. Apart from its agricultural solutions, DIMO has also facilitated the provision of safe drinking water for many households, through executing government’s rural water supply schemes. Ambatale Water Supply System Improvement and Energy Saving project which facilitates a 16% reduction in energy cost is another significant project by DIMO which showcases its efforts towards sustainability.
