Before joining the African Circular Business Alliance (ACBA) as a Country Representative in Kenya, Perkins worked as the ESHS/ESG Lead for ARCON Works Limited where he was responsible for ensuring compliance by developing and executing policies, procedures and management strategies, performing due diligence and analyses to inform sustainability of investment opportunities, designing programs to enhance proficiency, promoting ESHS/ESG conscious culture, carbon footprint measurements and quantification, advising on effective sustainability and ESG frameworks for continuous improvement, and guiding the integration of SDGs, IFC Performance Standards and CSR needs, among others.
Perkins’ experience adds value to ACBA’s work as he plays a pivotal role as a researcher and data analyst for several areas including Environmental, Safety, Health, Governance and Social Safeguards (ESHS/ESG) & EIA/EA/ESIA. His current role as a Carbon Footprint Quantification Expert is of extreme importance considering ACBA’s plans to leverage the role of Africa in developing Carbon Footprint Quantification Systems for the Measurement and Reduction of Methane and Carbon Dioxide Emissions in the atmosphere and industrial services.
