WHO WE ARE

The National Environment Trust Fund (NETFUND) is a state corporation under the Ministry of Environment and Forestry. NETFUND was established in 1999 by the Environmental Management and Coordination Act or EMCA (Section 24). Official operations began in 2006 under the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA). NETFUND became a state corporation independent of NEMA, in 2015 following amendment of the EMCA.

Section 24 of the Act sets out the following objectives for which NETFUND is established:

To facilitate research intended to further the requirements of environmental management, capacity building, environmental awards, environmental publications, scholarships and grants.

OUR VISION

Sustainable financing for environmental management in Kenya.

OUR MISSION

To mobilize, manage and avail resources for environmental awards, capacity building, research and publications, scholarships and grants in Kenya.

CORPORATE VALUES

The NETFUND core values are key principles that guide all our actions and behaviours. They form the foundation of the NETFUND culture and apply to Board of Trustees and all staff. These are:

  1. Passion: Belief in the difference our work makes compels us to provide exceptional services to our customers. We are prepared to go the extra mile to exceed our stakeholders’ expectations.
  2. Respect: Our esteem for our stakeholders makes us receptive and responsive to their needs and divergent opinions.
  3. Stewardship: As a Trust Fund we are prudent in the use of the resources entrusted to us to ensure maximum benefit accrues to our beneficiaries.

GOVERNANCE

NETFUND is governed by a Board of Trustees (BoT) which is the highest decision making organ of the Fund. The BoT members are appointed by the Cabinet Secretary in charge of Environment and Forestry.

The BoT is responsible for guiding the strategic direction of the fund, organizational policy frameworks, oversight of the Fund’s assets and undertaking any other activities within the mandate of the organization. The day-to-day running of the organization is vested in the Chief Executive Officer who is supported by a dedicated and skilled team.
