Key FindingsView the policy document
The Kenya Plastic Action Plan is an industry led plastic EPR and recycling plan developed by the Kenyan Association of Manufacturers (KAM). The goal is to achieve the following recycling rates; 15% by 2022, 27% by 2025, 30% by 2030 (Kenyan Association of Manufacturers, 2019). There was insufficient evidence available to review this policy at the time of the assessment as the policy is too recent to be assessed. However some emerging concerns regarding its potential effectiveness have been reported including the risks of greenwashing and the absence of deposit or return schemes linked to this policy (Clean up Kenya, 2020).
