Lumala said the company is driven by a mission to enhance environmental health and to inspire an active lifestyle throughout the Sri Lankan community. Continuing in its path of innovation, Lumala is devoted to developing eco-friendly solutions that support the broader agenda of global sustainability. This dedication firmly establishes Lumala’s leadership in the realm of smart mobility and underscores our commitment to environmental stewardship.

OSL take:
Sri Lanka’s path towards attaining sustainable development goals has resulted in the authorities looking at new initiatives to be adopted to achieve the set targets. This move in turn has opened up a host of new business/investment opportunities. There are already many local businesses that have expanded operations in the environment sustainability sector. Multilateral donor agencies have also pledged funding to engage in progranmes to fulfill the targets under the sustainable development goals. With Sri Lanka’s economy already on a growth path after facing an economically challenging period in the past few years, the opportunities to address the sustainable development goals have also expanded along with it. Foreign businesses/investors looking at opportunities in Sri Lanka, could explore the expanding opportunities in addressing sustainable environment needs of the country in keeping with the growing economic activities. Foreign businesses could also look at forming partnerships or joint ventures with local businesses engaged in achieving sustainable development goals with the aim of further growth and expansion.
