Kenyan private sector alliance in deal to combat plastic pollution

The Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA) has partnered with the Waste and Resources Action Programme, a climate action non-government organization, to combat plastic pollution in Kenya. Carole Kariuki, KEPSA Chief Executive Officer, stated that the partnership will help increase the adoption of new innovative solutions for sustainable development and create lasting benefits for the environment. “WRAP has remained an instrumental strategic partner to KEPSA since 2020, and we’re excited to scale our collaboration to address the pressing issue of plastic pollution in Kenya actively,” said Kariuki KEPSA CEO. She affirmed that the private sector will reduce the amount of unsustainable plastic packaging being produced in the local market. The KEPSA boss added that accelerating sustainable production and consumption of plastics by re-designing packaging will promote sustainable waste management practices. Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) CEO Harriet Lamb noted the strengthened partnership intends to support efforts to stop waste pollution through sustainable inclusive business. “Plastic pollution is a global challenge that requires collective action and collaboration. We are excited to explore further areas of partnership with Sustainable Inclusive Business under KEPSA and support their efforts to combat waste pollution in Kenya,” said WRAP CEO. WRAP convenes the Plastics Pact Network, a globally aligned response to plastic waste and pollution based on the New Plastics Economy vision for a circular economy for plastic. The Kenya Plastics Pact enables concerted action towards creating a circular economy for plastic packaging. https://www.capitalfm.co.ke/business/2024/02/kepsa-in-a-deal-to-combat-plastic-pollution-in-kenya/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=kepsa-in-a-deal-to-combat-plastic-pollution-in-kenya

      Great news. The Kenya Private Sector Alliance owns a significant number of companies whose plastic products output is the largest in Kenya. Having a deal to reduce plastic pollution is a welcome initiative.
