Today, in partnership with the Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) and Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA) we convened a High-level Meeting on the Code of Ethics for Business in Kenya. 

The Code is a Principles Based collective action Initiative that aims to promote and enhance the ethics of business conduct in Kenya in line with the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact.  Participating companies were called upon to implement the Code's principles in their business operations and supply chain and report on progress to strengthen transparency and accountability.

During the session, GCNK Executive Director, Judy Njino invited signatory companies to take advantage of the newly launched digital platform where they can readily access information and tools to support them in their compliance journey. 

Kenya Association of Manufacturers, Deputy Head of Policy Research & Advocacy Mirriam Bomett urged all stakeholders to seize the momentum generated by the forum and translate dialogue into action.  KEPSA Director, SMEs & Startups, Mary Ngechu emphasized the importance of education, compliance transparency, and collaboration, as comprehensive strategies for a more transparent business environment.
