The Dutch Embassy and SIB-Kenya have fostered a fruitful partnership and continue to exchange networks and knowledge support. Dutch good practice examples are also proof of concept for sustainability, many of which have inspired Kenyan companies of similar operations to start practicing SIB.
SIB-Kenya has also recently supported the embassy in conducting a sustainability scan, which has enabled the embassy to know their positive impact, assess their current status and chat possible ways of improvement!
