Global Compact Kenya - About us

The Global Compact Network was first launched in Kenya in 2005 by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) with five local businesses. It was re-launched in 2007 to allow for greater private sector ownership, this time in partnership with a trinity of leading private business organizations in Kenya namely Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM), Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA) & Federation of Kenya Employers (FKE). The secretariat is currently hosted at the Kenya Association of Manufacturers.
