Abstract—This paper focuses on Sri Lankan apparel manufacturing industry in relation to Global Warming by reviewing the industry contribution to increasing levels of atmospheric Carbon Dioxide (CO2) which is the governing factor in global warming. The ultimate objective of this study is to review the Apparel sector organizations in Sri Lanka to determine the extent of fossil fuel burning the sector is responsible and the pragmatic carbon offsetting steps taken by the organizations with commitment. The findings reveal the extent to which the fossil fuel burning is effected and the attitude of the corporate sector in pursuing avenues to reduce the use of fossil fuel. It highlighted that there is indeed a relationship between carbon emission and the burning of fossil fuel used in the generation of electricity. It was also revealed that in order to control the emissions effectively the awareness at corporate level was inadequate. Further, this paper attempts to develop a model of the effect of greenhouse gas in relation to carbon off-setting and carbon neutrality levels. Currently there are around 270 apparel factories in Sri Lanka and 50 apparel companies were selected.
