Green Supply Chain Initiatives And Challenges By Manufacturing Firms In Kenya
It is important that government of Kenya realize that sustainable business development is among the main goals of the Millennium Development Goals. In this realization, it would be therefore critical for the government to be on the fore front in terms of policy formulation to towards development of green businesses. Green Economies will be more competitive and more cost effective and with a growing proportion of the customers being more eco conscious it would be inevitable for the authorities not to take action. Incentives on the manufacturers should be on the forefront in this course since only incentives with an economic benefit will entice the business community to embrace GSCM. Relevant technologies could be also subsidized where appropriate. Enforcement of laws such as the requirement to submit an EIA/EA should be implemented to the core as slackening does not help the development of GSCM. The government could also take up partnerships with developed GSCM practioners in other countries and enable our manufacturing industry take this as a benchmarking and learning opportunity.
