Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM), is a representative of manufacturing and value-add industries in Kenya developed to create wealth at both corporate and individual levels by advocating for a competitive environment for businesses to operate, thereby creating better industries, growing the economy, creating jobs, and hence resulting in better standards of living for Kenyans.
Manufacturing organizations contribute significant amounts of GHG which impact adversely on the environment causing climate change impacts. KAM has been at the forefront of mitigating climate change through the establishment of strategic programs and centers including the Centre for Green Growth that seeks to deepen industries’ level interventions to become a one-stop solution for promoting circular economy, import-substitution, climate change actions, and financial linkages.
The Centre is also organizing expos and awards to recognize and award the best performing industries with respect to increasing awareness on energy efficiency, sustainability, renewable energy, and circular economy. Like KEPSA, KAM will play a very significant role in endorsing 4C-K to all its members to participate at a time when corporations are making climate change declarations ahead of COP26 in Glasgow, United Kingdom.
