Kenya endeavors to enhance plastic industry

Posted on : Tuesday , 30th April 2019

Manufacturers in Kenya have been working strategies towards the reuse and recycling of plastic waste. By establishing the Kenya Plastics Action Plan, manufacturers under the Kenya Association of Manufacturers will align 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. Focus now on a framework of partnerships that will ensure we achieve a common objective in waste management. The progress of the KAM Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) Scheme, is paramount in the management of waste,” Wahungu said.
 
KAM Chair Sachen Gudka noted that the development and progress of any economy goes hand in hand with waste management.
 
They also have been promoting the establishment and implementation of plastics Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) schemes by manufacturers across their membership. Kenya Plastics Action Plan aims to bring the Ocean Plastics Charter to life within our national context. 
 
By endorsing this Charter, the business community commits to, sustainable design, production and after use markets, plastic collection management and other systems infrastructure through Extended Producer Responsibility schemes and supporting research and innovation and new technologies.
 
Head of Canadian Delegation First Secretary (Political)/ Deputy Permanent Representative, Marcus Davies reiterated that plastics represent an important part of any economy.
 
Among the organizations that endorsed the Ocean Plastics Charter include Bidco Africa, Cooper K Brands Ltd, Coca Cola Beverages Africa, Unilever, Kenya Limited Melvins Tea and T3 Limited.
