Environmental Management in the Printing Industry

Femi Kayode, Ogunlade B. A.

Abstract


The 1999-Revised edition of the National Policy on the Environment, section 1.0 states that: “Nigeria is committed to a national environmental policy that will ensure sustainable development based on proper management. The paper sees this position as the best way to have an environment that is business-friendly. The printing industry, like any other organization cannot thrive successfully under an environment abused by man-made or artificial phenomena. All the assets and liabilities of nature meant to be enjoyed or otherwise by the printing industry are also important factors when it comes to environment management.  The entire stakeholders of the printing industry such as the shareholders/employer, employees, customers, suppliers/contractors and the creditors as well as the Government have one responsibility or the other to perform.  The paper therefore opines a two-way relationship between man and the environment, whereby man must handle the environment with sympathetic consideration and the environment too, creatively yield.  The paper also suggests to the printing industry and explains, benchmarking as a highly organized technique of managing the environment better.

 

Keywords: environment, legislation, printing industries, pollution, protection.
