Plastic does not belong in our oceans

Make it part of the circular economy

What we strive for

Ocean plastic is a complex and wicked problem – and so is fixing it. In Ocean Plastic Forum we want to clean up the world’s oceans and rivers while contributing to the transition towards a circular economy.

What we do

Ocean Plastic Forum starts up and facilitates value chains: Collaborations between companies and organisations where ocean plastic is removed from nature and recycled in an environmentally and economically sustainable manner.

Who we are
