  • Sustainability Role in overall company's strategic plans
    As a fair trade company we are committed to promoting and facilitating sustainable practices throughout our supply chain. Areas addressed include sourcing of raw materials, manufacturing processes, training, investment and payment of a fair price.
    Sustainability initiatives

    In recent years we have achieved the following:

    • Solar panels were installed at our UK office and warehouse in 2015 and have significantly reduced our de-pendence on traditional forms of energy
    • We have significantly reduced our use of plastic packaging by replacing it with paper offcuts from a local company that can be used as shred
    • Reduced the need for packaging materials by resizing and adapting outer carton boxes
    • Designed a range of small toys suitable for manufacture from offcuts to reduce wood wastage
    • Consolidated our shipping schedule in order to reduce the number of containers shipped from Sri Lanka to the UK each year
    Pledges for the year
    As a company Lanka Kade recognise that some of our activities have an impact on the environment in terms of using raw materials, emissions to air and water, and waste generation. Lanka Kade seek to mini-mise this as far as reasonably practicable and have recently introduced an Environmental Policy to set out intentions and aims for the future.
    Sustainable Products
    Mini vehicle range
    The nature of Lanka Kade’s product and its craft occasionally leaves their artisans with wood that cannot be used due to shape or size. In order to minimise waste and protect artisan profit margins Lanka Kade developed a range of mini vehicles that would utilise small offcuts or thin strips of wood. There are five colourful vehicles in the range including popular bus and digger designs which retail at just £2.49.
    Rainbow Animals
    Occasionally, rubber wood can carry dark natural blemishes that leave an undesirable finish. Often unable to identify the blemishes until the wood has been cut and treated; artisans can be left with large quantities of animals that can be used. Following consultation with our artisans; we have designed a range of fully painted, rainbow animals that enable the artisans to use all of their cuttings and dramatically reduce waste. Little ones can learn through play the colours of the rainbow, to count, stack and so much more as this set inspires their imaginations. Every set is provided with an animal in each colour – however as the animals are made from waste wood, specific animals cannot be guaranteed.
    Social equity at your company
    Lanka Kade adheres to the 10 Principles of Fair Trade as outlined by the WFTO which promotes amongst other things; equal opportunities, non-discriminatory practices, payment of a fair price and capacity building. Lanka Kade’s Educational Foundation in Sri Lankan supports disadvantaged rural primary schools with book donations and a milk programme.
