Promasidor Nigeria, has been awarded the “Best Kept Industrial Premises Award” by the Ikeja branch of the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN).

The Award, under MAN’s Total Compliance Inspection Competition initiative, is aimed at encouraging members’ adherence to environmental regulations and standards, and to also improve their environmental friendliness.

To enhance its credibility and transparency, members of the Awards Committee were drawn from the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA), the Federal Ministry of Environment and the National Environmental Standards and Regulations Enforcement Agency (NESREA). Others included Health, Safety and Environment professionals in the manufacturing sector and Ikeja MAN personnel and representatives.

Areas of inspection by the officials included external and internal premises, utilities, solid waste management, effluent treatment plant, pollution abatement, use of relevant and quality personal protective equipment, green-life and general aesthetics, government certifications as well as general good housekeeping.

The Awards Committee commended PNG’s usage of marked pedestrian walkways and adjudged the noise level in the factories to be at an acceptable standard, while the company’s environmental audit report and fire certificate were found to be current and valid.

PNG has consistently affirmed that a healthy environment is crucial for the workforce and the growth of any business, as well as the community in which it operates.

Responding to the Award, the Head Legal and Public Relations, PNL, Mr. Andrew Enahoro said the company is unwavering in maintaining environmental regulations, stressing that “it is essential for businesses to adhere to environmental laws in order to thrive and also for

the benefit of people living within that locality.”

Enahoro further stated that there is a need for collaboration between organisations and government on ways of making society safe for living despite the threat of global warming. “Promasidor’s efforts in preserving its ecosystem have endeared it to its host community,” he affirmed.
