A Triple Bottom Line initiative with “ Drive Green”

Alliance Finance, in 2012 launched a project to provide gas powered three wheelers to unemployed individuals without the standard requirement of a down payment, in order to enable them earn a much needed income by hiring them as metered taxies. Air pollution caused by fuel powered three wheelers is high and more so in the case of the two stroke engines. The company took on the task of conversion of three wheelers into gas powered ones, thus incorporating two significant impacts; that of reducing the carbon foot print, and of enabling higher profits for the drivers/owners by substituting fuel with the much less costly alternative of gas. The environmental benefits of the gas powered three wheelers are significant in a country such as Sri Lanka in which three wheelers are a popular and vital source of transportation on congested roads, as well as a livelihood for many. These three Wheelers painted in Yellow and Green can be easily identified on the streets, and those who use these three wheelers will be empowering disadvantaged sections of our society whilst also contributing to saving the environment by reducing emissions of harmful gases.

The Pana mure Elephant Museum

In 2012, Alliance Finance contributed to construct a museum dedicated to the famous Panamure Atha (Elephant) and the legend that revolves around him, in Embilipitiya. The project, begun with a suggestion made by the local priest, is aimed at preserving historical and local knowledge for future generations who would otherwise know very little. Similarly, the company plans to set aside a percentage of earnings at each of its branches to support projects that benefit the people in the respective areas, thus fostering a sense of pride and ownership of their locality and a feeling of camaraderie amongst the residents; whilst also facilitating the company’s integration into these communities.
