KenGen CEO Rebecca Miano Appointed Vice Chair of Global Compact Network Kenya

Kenya Electricity Generating Company PLC (KenGen) Managing Director and CEO, Rebecca Miano has been appointed as the new Vice Chair of the Board of the Global Compact Network Kenya for a three-year term.

Global Compact Network Kenya is the Local Network of the United Nations Global Compact that is working to accelerate and scale the collective impact of businesses in Kenya by upholding the ten principles and delivering the SDGs through accountable companies and ecosystems that enable change.

“It is a great honour to be appointed as the Vice-Chair of the United Nations Global Compact Network, Kenya, where I have been a Board Member since November 2019. It gives me great joy to know that what we do as KenGen towards the realization of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is not only being noticed but making a positive impact on business,” Mrs Miano said.

“With this new mandate, we look forward to continuing to spearhead and catalyze actions aimed at promoting good business practices by building capacity and creating awareness about corporate governance and sustainability in line with the UN Global Compact’s 10 principles.  On behalf of my team at KenGen, we thank the Global Compact Board for this opportunity and reiterate our intention and commitment to continue leading the renewable energy and climate action agenda in Kenya for the greater good of our country and people” She added.

This appointment follows a similar one in April 2022, when Mrs Miano was appointed by the Ministry of Energy to lead the Commonwealth Action Group on Geothermal in Kenya under the Commonwealth Action Group on geothermal under the Commonwealth Sustainable Energy Transition Agenda.

In October 2021, she was named among the top women CEOs leading business in Africa in a pool of top 50 women comprising of Chief Executives, Division Heads and Regional Managers who oversee over 1,400 companies sampled by Africa.com for the Definitive List of Women CEOs in Africa 2021. In July 2020, she was appointed to the World Bank Group’s Advisory Council on Gender Development.

Kenya is Africa’s number one geothermal energy producer and among the top 10 in the world with an installed capacity of 949MW with KenGen contributing about 799MW. The country has an estimated geothermal potential of 10,000MW spread along its part of the Rift Valley circuit.
