Asia’s first Carbon Neutral Pest Control Company, The Exterminators (Pvt) Ltd, announced a global first with their proprietary ‘Specialized Anti-Microbial Disinfection Service’ that is focused on countering the spread of the current global pandemic of COVID-19.

The local pest management company stated that they were successful in obtaining the globally recognised Carbon Neutral certification for their dedicated service, further demonstrating their continuous commitment towards the environment. This latest achievement is also a part of a larger vision of the pest control company to become a more responsible corporate citizen.

The Carbon Neutral Certification for the specialised disinfection service of the Exterminators was awarded by the Sustainable Future Group (SFG), Sri Lanka’s only sustainability verification and certification body that is accredited to verify and validate Organisational and Project-level GHG emissions inventories under ISO 14064. SFG is also the regional partner of the London-based Natural Capital Partners, the proprietor of The Carbon Neutral Protocol that governs the global certification, who was recently recognised as the “Best Carbon Offset Retailer” in the world for a record ninth consecutive year.

During this extremely difficult time for local communities and businesses alike due to the ongoing pandemic, this initiative of the Exterminators in training and setting up a team of experts to provide a specialised disinfectant service to the country is nothing short of commendable.

The Exterminators have also disinfected Quarantine Centers of the country as well as the “Lotus Tower”, with their teams having travelled over 5,700 kms to date solely for this purpose. It is noteworthy to mention that none of the locations disinfected with this special treatment have reported any COVID-19 cases. “As Sri Lanka’s pioneering and premier disinfection business, achieving this certification status was an important milestone for our company in the current crisis situation”, stated Marlon Ferreira Founder/Managing Director of Exterminators.
