KAM launches Extended Producer Responsibility Organization
Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) launched the Kenya Extended Producer Responsibility Organization (KEPRO) to address post-consumer waste in Kenya.
KEPRO brings together players in the value chain, and aims to promote collaboration, seek commitment by waste value chain players and support the achievement of a circular economy in Kenya.
The launch of KEPRO is in line with commitments made in the Kenya Plastic Action Plan, which seeks to enable a circular economy for the environmentally sustainable use and recycling of plastics in Kenya. It follows last year’s launch of a Strategic Business Plan for the establishment of a Plastic Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) in the country. The Business Plan set out the direction of KAM’s priorities in the waste value chain and key action in effecting the steps towards a clean Kenya.
