A Workshop to Validate a study on integrity in the flower industry and Sensitization session on the Code of Ethics for Business in Kenya

With the objective of supporting and providing technical assistance to businesses in Kenya, GIZ has partnered with the Private Sector to focus on best practices for adherences to rule of law. To achieve this, the GIZ programme has cooperated with Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM), Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA), Kenya Flower Council (KFC) and Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) since 2011. Within the framework of the cooperation, Code of Ethics for Business in Kenya was launched in 2012. The Code aims to promote ethical behaviour in business relations on a voluntary basis. Following the successful introduction of the Code of Ethics for Businesses in Kenya, the programme recently extended the cooperation with the Flower Industry in Kenya with the sole aim of developing and implementing Corporate Social Responsibility Principles. A workshop to validate the study on corruption prevalence in the flower industry as well as sessions to Sensitise on the Code of Ethics for Business in Kenya will be held on 29th and 30th October 2013, the venue will be communicated later. This will create an in-depth understanding of the benefits of joining the code, obligations under the code, reporting and compliance monitoring mechanisms. In addition, obtain valuable advice on how to implement the code in everyday business routines.
