Accolades for Hayleys’ Waste Water Treatment Process

A pioneer in weft knit fabric manufacture in Sri Lanka, Hayleys Fabric has reiterated its commitment to superior waste water treatment.

With its modern waste water treatment plant, Hayleys boasts of a superior treatment process to purify and guarantee the quality of the water being discharged so that it meets the prescribed standards. About 4500m^3 waste water is treated through their plant through screening, equalization, biological and chemical treatments. The purified water is constantly checked in-house, and by external parties such as the Central Environment Authority (CEA), the Water Board and the Board of Investment (BOI), prior to being released into the neighbouring river.

As per the company, Hayleys has earned another accolade confirming the consistent maintenance of superior standards of water quality in the form of GREEN status awarded to it by NIKE Since 2016 – the highest rating for compliance with stringent NIKE Water Quality Guidelines under the NIKE Sustainable Water.

Hayleys Fabric’s pledge to build and adhere to good sustainability and environmental standards are shown through its partnerships with global movements such as the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) and by its commitment to the SBTis.

Hayleys has complied with the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) programme ahead of the granted timeline. In recognition of its award-winning achievement in complying with the ZDHC requirements ahead of time, Hayleys was invited to share their best practices at the 2020 ZDHC South Asia regional conference held in Bangladesh.
