dc.description.abstract The large-scale dry rubber sector plays a key role in the Sri Lankan Economy. Annual survey of industries in Sri Lanka, Dept ofCensus & Statistics - 2004 reveal that productivity indicator added value content average percentage is the highest in rubber product. The Central Bank Report 2010 reveal that rubber industry shows higher percent growth rate (export) and it flows huge foreign exchange to the country. Out of that main contributor are the dry rubber based products. Since this is one of the highest contributor to the GDP in the economy. It is inevitable that there is a strategic requirement to undertake studies investigating environmental aspect and impact in the dry rubber processing to have sustainable growth. The objective of this research study is to find the current product and process related environmental issues, Identification of the factors affecting for these Issues & recommend policies and strategies to overcome these Environmental issues of Dry Rubber Product Manufacturing industry in Sri Lanka to promote this sector as one of leading sustainable industry in Sri Lankan economy. The government initiatives to control industrial pollution have been focused on the improving ofthe environmental performance offactories through a compliance system based on environmental laws, regulations and effluent standards and voluntary Industrial regulation in some companies. Government has more focused to offer Environmental Protection Licence base on boundary measurements (suspended particular matter, noise level, effluent quality & emission test) under central environment regulations. Since very few numbers of researches have been carried out in locally and internationally on this area, researcher developed his own conceptual model through extensive literature survey. Quantitative research was carried out among fourteen large-scale dry rubber products manufacturing organization in Sri Lanka. Analysis showed that there is a relationship between variables Environmental Leadership, Achievement Culture, Engineering Capabilities, Environmental Strategies, Environmental Legislation, Global Concern, Technological Changes, and New Practice and Stakeholders Influence. In regression analysis only two variables are significant &confirmed that higher Environmental leadership lowers the Environment Issues, higher stakeholders influence higher the environment Issues. Further higher value of technology changes will enhance affects the relationship between Environment Issue & all independent variable. Finally, recommended policies imply more emphasis on developing human resource to manage the Safety, Health & Environment aspects in the work places & assimilation of new technology. en_US
