Whats New

Formulation of an environmental policy

The Ecotourism Kenya Certification Scheme has a set standard on environmental policy that emphasizes on;

  • Clear written sustainability/environmental policy
  • Show responsive and conclusive address to responsible resource use, environmental conservation, cultural issues, socio-economic investment,       health & safety and quality issues
  • Evidence of proper communication, translation/implementation of policies into action
  • Evidence of an Environmental Management System appropriate to nature, scale and scope of the business, and current Environmental          Management Plan with clarity and specificity of plan (goals, targets, etc.) and execution (allocation of responsibility, clear timeframes etc.)
  • The guidelines in formulation of an environmental policy are borrowed from constitutional and legal requirements of rights and freedoms as well as environmental protection. They include;

Every person in Kenya has a right to a clean and healthy environment and a duty to safeguard and enhance the environment.

The right to development should be exercised taking into consideration the economic, social and environmental needs.
