Planting trees helps in the achievement of the 10% forest cover threshold as envisaged in Kenya’s vision 2030 blueprint. It is for this reason that Premier Credit, in collaboration with Friends of Karura, joined hands to plant two thousand and three hundred trees within Karura Forest. To ensure sustainable growth and development of the planted trees, Premier Credit will ensure that the planted trees are well nurtured and watered for a period of 3 years. Premier Credit has also partnered with Kuresoi Forest to plant one thousand, one hundred indigenous trees which is equivalent to one hectare. This will have a great impact in reversing severe damage that may arise from deforestation, help in energy conservation, saving water and reducing soil erosion.
Steaming from a successful private and public partnership, Premier credit partnered with Longisa county and referral hospital in Bomet, by commissioning a shed that will be used by clients’ caretakers as they wait for their loved ones to be attended to. Premier also partnered with Ndubusat dispensary in Nandi County where there was a donation of medical equipment. In the near foreseeable future, Premier will be expanding its partnership to other institutions with the aim of supporting the health sector and giving back to society.
Waste management is an inseparable part of environmental conservation that Premier credit limited values. As one of our pillars in CSR, Premier engaged in an exercise to eliminate illegal garbage that had piled up at Hardy market; Karen. For a while the garbage has been dumped by the local community, this was not only detrimental to the health of the market vendors but also the community around the market. Premier Credit Limited helped to eliminate the garbage and install one bin out of two, the other bin had been sponsored by Eezy Group. Premier Credit Limited also committed to collecting the garbage over a period of one year as a lasting sustainable solution for the market.As a culmination of the above, Premier Credit Limited employees together with staff from Eezy Group and Platcorp Group took part in a cleaning exercise in Hardy, Karen.
