Promasidor seeks synergy between corporate citizenship, environment, government
Leading Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) producer, Promasidor Nigeria Limited has called for working synergy between industrial firms, government policies and host communities in order to track the challenges of environmental pollution.
The council was handed down by the Head, Legal and Public Relations of the company, Mr. Andrew Enahoro in a statement.
He said a healthy environment was very crucial for the growth of any business and that for this to take place, there must be compliance with environmental regulations in areas of operation.
Giving insight on the activities Promasidor, he said the company had been keeping to regulations on healthy environment and that it was essential for businesses to adhere to environmental laws in order to thrive and also for the benefit of people living within that locality.
According to him, “Promasidor’s efforts in keeping its environment free from pollution and other health hazards have endeared the company to its host community in Isolo, where it operates”.
“This is as a result of the giant strides made to ensure compliance with the state environmental regulations and standards, thereby contributing to carbon reduction in the environment through mitigated measures against global warming and climate change.
Enahoro disclosed further that as part of Promasidor’s corporate belief, it recently installed eco-friendly equipment in its premises and this had eliminated health risks to people in the locality.
“We have put in place facility on solar energy, which generates electricity from sunlight and can be fed into the main electricity supply of the organisation. This has greatly helped in reducing noise level from the use of generator sets, which are used to complement the epileptic power supply in the country.
“This is in line with what is widely practised in other developed economies, where private organisations are meant to generate some percentage of the required power for the production and delivery of their products and services. This does not produce any pollutant and is one of the cleanest sources of energy. In comparison, solar energy promotes the essence of keeping the environment green in compliance with regulations from the government,” he added.
