Saving the Next Generation: Restoration of degraded sites at the Knuckles Forest Reserve

 

Native Plants and Climate Change

    Knuckels forest native plants are not only beautiful, they are also essential components of our ecosystems and natural processes, and provide us with valuable renewable materials and other benefits. Knuckles forest features a great diversity in its forest cover: dry evergreen forests, montane forests, sub-montane forests, dry and wet pathana, etc. It has been found 20 percent of the plants herein are endemic to Sri Lanka. A wide range of hardwood as well as herbal plants are found herein. Knuckels hosts many thousands of species, subspecies, and varieties of native plants, many of which are found nowhere else in the world, and many animal species depend on these native plants for food and shelter. Unfortunately, knuckels unique plant biodiversity and the ecosystems upon which it depends are especially vulnerable to the effects of climate change. It is estimated that approximately 20 percent of knuckels forest endemic plant species will experience decreases of up to 50 percent in the size of their ranges within the next 100 years.   view more....

From the inception as a leading UN business participant Noritake Lanka porcelain is in the process of respecting and supporting universal principles, and played an important role in helping to realize the Sustainable Development Goals.


NLPL’s “Save The Next Generation” project is one of the major undertake initiative recently launched to promote greater environment responsibility with the united effort of the University of Peradeniya, , Forest Department and the local villagers to restore lower montane forests at Knuckles forest conservation area. This project has given tremendous boost to protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystem, sustainably managed forest, combat desertification and climate change, and halt and revers land degradation and half biodiversity loss.


Saving the Next Generation: Restoration of lower montane forests at Knuckles Forest Reserve- (First Census)

The loss and fragmentation of habitats is one of the major threats to the survival, diversity and abundance of many vertebrate and invertebrate fauna in at Knuckles Forest Reserve. The effective restoration plans can overcome such adverse effect and reinstate the lost biodiversity. Our program connects forest fragments and enhances the habitats for species, in turn conserve threatened species in the area. We (through department of Zoology, University of Peradeniya) continuously monitor the successional changes in vertebrates and invertebrate communities in the restored site. The 1st Faunal survey after transplantation was conducted on 7th May 2018.Hourly observation were done and all invertebrates (Eg: butterflies, bees, dragonflies, crickets, grasshoppers, spiders and snails) and vertebrates (birds and herpetofauna) inhabiting the area were listed.

NORITAKE LANKA PORCELAIN (PVT) LIMITED CLINCHED JASTECA CSR/ SUSTAINABILITY SILVER AWARD

 

     The Carbon Foot Print project launched under the “Go Green” concept by Noritake Lanka porcelain (Private) Limited ,was awarded the JASTECA CSR/ / Sustainability Silver award at the recently concluded JASTECA Awards 2017.NLPL competed against corporate giants of Sri Lanka and was selected as the 1st runner up of this prestigious award .


Ethical Business
NLPL (Noritake Lanka Porcelain (private) Limited) is bound to conduct their business in a way that is ethical and society friendly. This obligation shows that the organizations have to comply with legislation and voluntarily take initiatives to improve the well-being of their employees and their families as well as for the local community and society at large. NLPL’s CSR (Corporate Sustainable Responsibility) involves a range of activities such as working in partnership with local communities, socially sensitive investment, developing relationships with employees, customers and their families, and involving in activities for environmental conservation and sustainability.


Objectives
As a consequence of the scientific research, NLPL realized that the focus on the “Carbon Foot Print” is the most viable mechanism to sustain in the global business. CO2 reduction by 5% annually with radical changes in the technologies and actual product concept, as well as in the available energy sources and 0.50% of CO2 fixation in year 2026 by growing native trees in Knuckles mountain range turn out to be the most environment innovative activity of NLPL. This project widely stretchers other benefits such as protection for clear and perennial waterways, clouds and exquisite fauna and flora in knuckles mountain range as it is a climatic microcosm of the rest of Sri Lanka.


“Climate change and Global warming” as a major threatening Issue
For Noritake “Climate change and Global warming” has become a major issue in global business. Carbon dioxide is one of the greenhouse gases responsible for global warming, whose emissions are internationally subject to monitoring and restriction. The Porcelain tableware manufacturing is a highly energy-intensive production process and one of the main contributors to CO2 emissions since it contains several stages in which the products are subject to thermal treatment. As the largest producer of porcelain products in Sri Lanka and other countries, Noritake is accounted for the maximal proportion of global emissions by porcelain manufacturing from fuel use and power generation.


For the industrial sectors, which include the ceramic sector, the objective is to reduce CO2 emissions by between 83% and 87% in 2050, values that are certainly very ambitious and that, according to certain simulations, will require radical changes in the technologies and actual product concept, as well as in the available energy sources.
