Circular Economy Breakfast - Registration Form
As the global challenge of waste management continues to afflict various planetary ecosystems, the need for contemporary strategies has become increasingly urgent to counter this menace for greener economies. Like many other nations, Kenya has taken significant steps to promote sustainable waste management. These efforts are evidenced by introducing the Sustainable Waste Management Act 2021 and the latest regulations, introducing the “Polluter Pays” principle, Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR). EPR places mandatory responsibility on producers for post-consumer waste, thereby linking the cost of waste management to the consumption of products that contribute to the waste stream. This represents a significant leap towards achieving a circular economy.
Kenya grapples with a substantial informal sector that demands efficient waste management systems encompassing depollution through effective sorting, dismantling, and recycling. In this context, this roundtable conversation forum aims to serve as a platform for sharing information, raising awareness, fostering effective advocacy, and enhancing capacity building in the pursuit of a circular economy.
The forum is especially timely in light of the 60-DAY NEMA NOTICE ON EPR COMPLIANCE. The conversations within this forum will support the upstarting of EPR compliance and serve as a learning platform on best practices and effective roadmaps towards a circular economy in Kenya and beyond.
- Different stakeholders, particularly producer representatives of the different categories of producers as stipulated within the EPR regulations and enthusiasts of a circular economy.
- Representatives in the supply chain line within manufacturing and logistics companies and others.
- Producer Responsibility Organizations and government authorities are equally targeted to shed more light on EPR compliance.
