A COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY

Dilmah Conservation is an extension of the Dilmah commitment to making business a matter of human service. Established in 2007, Dilmah Conservation is working towards a more sustainable use of the environment in partnership with the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature). Dilmah Conservation initiatives aim to foster respect for the environment and ensure its protection. We, at Dilmah, believe that every individual and business has an obligation to ensure that a sustainable interaction with the environment is maintained at all times.

"Dilmah owes its success to the quality of Ceylon Tea. Our business was founded therefore on an enduring connection to the land and the communities in which we operate. We have pioneered a comprehensive commitment to minimising our impact on the planet, fostering respect for the environment and ensuring its protection by encouraging a harmonious coexistence of man and nature. We believe that conservation is ultimately about people and the future of the human race, that efforts in conservation have associated human well-being and poverty reduction outcomes. These core values allow us to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations of sustainability."
