Manufacturers Endorse Global Charter on Plastics
Manufacturers have today pledged to join a global initiative to manage plastic waste in the country.
By establishing the Kenya Plastics Action Plan, manufacturers under KAM are embarking on collaborative strategies towards the reuse and recycling of plastic waste. The Action Plan resonates with the Ocean Plastics Charter, which is a long term private sector initiative on the sustainable manufacture, use and recycling of plastics
Speaking at the event, National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) Director General, Prof. Geoffrey Wahungu urged manufacturers to sign on to the Charter as a means of achieving sustainability in waste management.
‘I want to assure industry that we will work together to develop predictable policies. We are now focusing on a framework of partnerships that will ensure we achieve a common objective in waste management. We also want to see the progress of the KAM Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) Scheme ,which is paramount in the management of waste,’ Prof Wahungu said.
