Environmental Program Manager

Description

Position at Logitech

ENVIRONMENTAL PROGRAM MANAGER

The Company

Logitech is the sweet spot for people who are passionate about products, making a mark, and having fun. As a company, we’re small and flexible enough for every person to take initiative and make things happen. But we’re big enough in our portfolio, and reach, for those actions to have a global impact. That’s a pretty sweet spot to be in and we’re always striving to keep it that way.

Approximately 50% of our annual revenue is generated from products produced at our own facility in China. At that facility, we have an established EHS (Environment, Health & Safety) team and we rely on a number of local and international Component Suppliers. The remainder of our revenue is generated from products that are manufactured by Joint Design Manufacturers (JDMs) and Contract Manufacturers (CMs), who are working in accordance with established standards for environmental and social good practice.  We also lease space in a number of third-party warehouses worldwide, for interim storage of products that are being shipped to market.

Logitech is a member of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) and committed to best practice sustainability performance. Our goal is to have a best-in-class production facility, which “leads the way” for our suppliers. We expect similar high standards of environmental performance in our supply chain and we are actively working to reduce the environmental impact of our supply chain year-on-year.

The Role:

Logitech’s global Sustainability Team is looking to recruit a Environmental Program Manager to lead the development and implementation of environmental management systems and programs for Major Component Suppliers, Joint Design Manufacturers (JDMs), Contract Manufacturers (CMs) and Warehousing Suppliers.

    • Develop water risk assessments, targets and timelines for suppliers to reduce any significant impacts on water resources, particularly in areas of water scarcity.

    • Develop waste inventories and insights for our own production facility and supplier facilities, to help us identify waste reduction initiatives, material efficiency programs and landfill avoidance programs. 

    • Optimise the use of refrigerants to reduce carbon impacts.

  • Support our existing Social and Supply Chain Auditing Team with environmental expertise and contribute to team auditing tools.

  • Research and identify relevant governmental and local authority initiatives that Logitech or our supply chain should participate in, to work with others and/or governmental support, to reduce our environmental impact.

  • Lead our existing Warehousing Sustainability Program, including strategies and targets, to drive down the environmental impact of warehousing year-on-year.

  • Manage and evaluate carbon and other environmental data for internal and external reporting of supply chain performance, to develop new insights and inform decision-making.
