“Since MAS commenced its sustainability journey, Noyon has embraced the ‘green concept’ and driven projects to reflect this. These awards highlight the journey that Noyon has been on, and winning Gold for the Chemical Leasing Project for Waste Water Treatment as well as the National Energy Efficiency Awards, are the latest in its sustainability efforts. Today, we have taken this innovation as a Sri Lankan effort to the world stage and it’s only natural that we continue to stay on this path driving sustainability and green chemistry in our vision for 2025. Innovation for sustainability should now be a norm and we are proud to have taken the lead on this front” – Mr. Ashiq Lafir, CEO Noyon Lanka
