Avery Dennison Corporation (NYSE: AVY) announced today that it plans to reduce its absolute greenhouse gas emissions by at least 3 percent every year between now and 2025. The company announced the goal in its new sustainability report. “Cutting emissions while still growing as a company is the defining business challenge of the 21st century,” said Avery Dennison chairman and chief executive officer Dean Scarborough. “At the very least, it’s a matter of risk mitigation. Climate change threatens our business, our supply chain and the communities where we live and work. By using The 3% Solution, developed by World Wildlife Fund and Carbon Disclosure Project, as the basis of our approach, we expect to reduce emissions by a minimum of 26 percent by 2025.”
OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series) is the most widely used and internationally accepted standard for occupational health and safety. Following the recent publication of the new ISO 45001 standard, which will replace the OHSAS 18001 standard in three years, Lecta has begun the adaptation process with the goal of working to the new standard as of next year.
Lecta had already obtained individual OSHAS 18001 certification for all its mills, warehouses and offices, proof of its commitment to the safety and health of its employees, as well as the goal of continuous improvement shared with the quality and environmental management systems that the company is based on.
Multisite status entails working under a common management system at all Lecta sites, consistently meeting the requirements set by the standard as a whole. Company headquarters will establish the guidelines and make any corrections needed to achieve this goal.
OHSAS 18001 multisite certification acknowledges the effort made by all Lecta employees as well as highlighting the importance that Lecta places on the prevention of occupational risks and good practices in the workplace.
This multisite occupational health and safety certification enables Lecta to reassert its position as a responsible company ready to respond to the most demanding markets, in keeping with its policy of transparency towards its customers, employees and other stakeholders.
