As the regulatory arm of the State Government on the environment, the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA) is saddled with the responsibility of maintaining a healthy environment through adequate regulatory mechanism. In meeting these statutory responsibilities, LASEPA recorded outstanding achievements in the following areas:

  1. To ensure compliance with environmental standards, LASEPA monitored 502 manufacturing industrial premises and 86 hotels/eateries within the state. About 70% monitored facilities complied with all environmental requirements.
  2. In a bid to reduce Green House Gas (GHG) emissions, LASEPA carried out a pilot survey on Okobaba sawmill to convert the huge sawdust into useable bio fuel to replace fossil fuel used in industries. From the pilot study so far, there is huge prospect of significantly reducing GHG emission in the state.
  3. LASEPA has also initiated a law to reduce pollution from vehicle exhausts.
  4. As Industrial activities spread all over the state, necessitating wide coverage in monitoring environmental compliance, LASEPA resuscitated an area office in Ikorodu as part of the plan to increase the number of area offices across the state.
  5. Aware that Lagos State is the destination of most E-Waste entering Nigeria, LASEPA organised in 2011 the first International E-Waste summit to sensitise Lagosians on the dangers of used Electrical Electronic Equipment.
  6. The agency also carried out a study on the quality of underground water table in two (2) Local government Areas of the state; Kosofe and Mushin LGA’s, and discovered high level pollution through random sampling taken from borehole and well water in residential areas and filling stations in the two Local Government Areas.
  7. Propelled by the need to improve on laboratory analysis of hydrocarbons of water sample from oil and gas sector as well as oil polluted areas, the Agency resuscitated and upgraded the gas chromatography (GC) which is now in use.
  8. In the bid to ensure a cleaner environment and compliance to regulatory standards, LASEPA sanctioned and sealed off erring Industries across the state.
  9. In the same vein, the Agency carried out destruction exercise of Hazardous chemicals and products in 5 Industrial facilities across the state and issued certificate of destruction to the concerned companies. The destruction exercise became necessary to prevent circulation of such expired products into the market.
  10. So far the Agency has carried out successfully safe destruction of expired products/raw materials from several companies with Certificates of Destruction duly issued to the facilities.
