DIMO recognised at ACCA Sustainability Awards
Diesel and Motor Engineering (DIMO) was recognised as the Overall Runners-up at the ACCA Sustainability Reporting Awards 2016. The awards recognised Sri Lankan companies for transparency, accountability and responsibility of action as reflected in their Sustainability Reporting. In addition, DIMO was also the winner in the Retail and Trading category.
Ranjith Pandithage, the Chairman, DIMO speaking on the achievement said, "We are delighted with the recognition received for this year's annual report. These accolades validate our commitment to transparency and honesty in reporting both the positives and negatives of our impacts, operations and strategies."
He said that reporting was the last cog in a series of actions that are embedded in how work is carried out at DIMO, cascading from its vision to corporate planning and strategy, and therein to its operations.
"We have over the years, formalised the practice of evaluating the value we create or decrease in every decision and action taken across the organisation; the many benefits of this process, whether they are tangible or intangible, financial or otherwise - have been immense."
DIMO's philosophy revolves around being responsible for its actions and has been among the first corporate entities in Sri Lanka to publish a Sustainability Report.
