dc.description.abstract Note: See the PDF Version With the beginning of 21' century, the concept of "Green Economy" has floated-out in to main stream of policy discourse of almost all the governments in world (UNEP, 2011). Similarly by introducing Haritha Lanka Programme (HLP), Sri Lankan government has also taken the initiative to the process of greening the Sri Lankan economy. As far as tea cultivation has concerned as a key sector in Sri Lankan economy, several green initiatives (GI) have been taken through HLP to green the Sri Lankan tea industry, namely promotion off- grid renewable energy utilization in the manufacturing process through carbon offset projects, promotion of organic tea cultivation, introduction of ozone friendly pure Ceylon tea certification system and introduction of national green reporting system. Meanwhile renewable energy utilization in the manufacturing process and organic tea cultivation practices can be identified as more extensively diffused GIs in Sri Lankan tea industry, since other two initiatives have just introduced in middly of this year (2011). Infact positive environmental impact of these initiatives were proven, but still no significant study was carried out to find the economic impact after implemented situations. Therefore, this study was carried out to find out the economic impact of two major extensively diffused GIs, namely renewable energy utilization (GIL) and organic tea cultivation practices (GI2) in estate category of Sri Lankan tea industry. en_US
