Proposal for a new allocation method of environmental goals applied to an Algerian cement factory

Proposal for a new allocation method of environmental goals applied to an Algerian cement factory Purpose This paper seeks to focus on environmental management and is part of a persistent operation of industrial enterprises.

Abstract

Purpose This paper seeks to focus on environmental management and is part of a persistent operation of industrial enterprises. This context is justified by the fact that, despite taking the value of environmental management, many Algerian enterprises fail to ensure integration of environmental considerations into their business activities.Designmethodologyapproach It is a proposal of a method for corporate environmental policy through the allocation of the global environmental goal.Findings The method of allocation of the global environmental goal proposed is based on the criticality of the environmental risk that must make it acceptable or tolerable. The allocation principle used is based on a judicious choice of the weight allowance with reference to the criticality grid of environmental risks.Practical implications The method of allocation of the global environmental goal is a valuable help to Algerian companies to ensure better integration of the environment into production, especially Algerian cement factories known for their polluting activities.Originalityvalue The method of allocation of the global environmental goal is framed by the proposed GRAI approach and especially by its concept of periodhorizon which can enhance the contribution of the proposed method, especially to the planning decisions for achieving the global environmental goal.
