Environment Risk Assessment, ERA

In 2022, Logoplaste completed its first global Environmental Risk Assessment, aka ERA.

The self-assessment identified many opportunities for improvement in the following areas:

  • Electricity and water meters
  • Dealing with local and accidental spillages
  • Hazardous and electrical waste control
  • Site standards
  • Training and awareness

As a company with Sustainability at the core of its operations, it was necessary to determine where we are regarding the management and care of the environment.

An online self-assessment was conducted to collect responses to 45 questions; the output influences our action plans and decision making.

The self-assessment was completed by all plants over six weeks and took on average 35 minutes to complete.

The Environmental Risk Assessment is an essential aspect of our operations and helps support the decision-making process, plans, and supporting platforms such as Ecovadis. The self-assessment repeats every three years.

A full report was issued and shared internally, so everyone can better understand where we stand.
