Leleshwa Pharmacy is listed in BCCK’s Integrity Index
November 11, 2021, Nairobi, Kenya…Leleshwa Pharmacy, a residential pharmacy in the heart of the Kileleshwa community is listed as a company committed to integrity in the inaugural Integrity Index by the British Chamber of Commerce Kenya (BCCK). The Index features companies based in Kenya, that have a track record in working with integrity with multinational organisations and BCCK members.
The Index is part of the Business Integrity Initiative (BII) pilot programme, which is run by BCCK in
partnership with the UK Department for International Development (DFID), the UK Department for
International Trade (DIT) and the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) in Kenya. The BII provides practical guidance on navigating integrity challenges and provides a range of platforms to increase peer-to-peer private sector engagement. It also works with the Kenyan authorities to promote improvements to local market conditions.
“To be seen and recognized as a company committed to integrity gives us an incredible boost to do more and keep striving foward with confidence” said Dr Moraa Kiangoi, Pharmacist, Director at Leleshwa Pharmacy.
The Index features 28 companies that completed the nomination and self-assessment process. They are drawn from across 10 different sectors and vary in size from three to 3,000 employees. Companies were assessed on their track record of working with UK and International companies, as well as their documented policies and procedures.
The BCCK has also launched a report on the Index, which details the practical measures being taken by companies on the Index. These are all linked to the BII’s six integrity principles; proportionate procedures, top level commitment, risk assessment, due diligence, communication and training, monitoring and review.
Farida Abbas, CEO, BCCK says, “We are excited to recognise efforts that these companies are making to run ethical and trusted businesses. We hope that this Index will provide long term benefits to all the featured companies. A listing on the Index is external recognition of the efforts being made to run a trusted and ethical business. We aim to prove that ethical business pays. So, we will be signposting these businesses to any UK organisations looking to partner with Kenya-based companies.”
