Kenya sets direction for plastic waste management

By EDITH MUTETHYA in Nairobi, Kenya | CHINA DAILY | Updated: 2020-10-17 00:00

The Kenya Association of Manufacturers launched a strategic business plan on Oct 14 for the establishment of a Plastic Producer Responsibility Organization as the sector moves from a linear to a circular economy.

The organization will drive the collective extended producer responsibility in the country, where a manufacturer's responsibility for a product is extended to the post-consumer stage of its life cycle, turning plastic waste into valuable resources.

Developed by the Kenya Association of Manufacturers in partnership with Sustainable Inclusive Business, which is a part of the Kenya Private Sector Alliance Foundation and the Netherlands embassy to Kenya, the business plan seeks to create a circular economy for the environmentally sustainable use and recycling of plastics in Kenya.
