Hayleys Stories

Sustainability genuinely penetrates our core operations. As a socially conscious corporate, we endorse the practice of 'hands on rather than hand outs' - an approach where interactions with our stakeholders promote valid discourse and give light to issues. We aim to cement our growing role of leadership in corporate sustainability in our vision of becoming Sri Lanka's corporate inspiration.

Whilst being conscious of the fact that profit is the raison d'être of business, we are mindful that sustainable profit does not happen in isolation of our People and our Planet.
