Innovation Projects

Oceans and Plastics Platform

It is clear that plastic pollution is disastrous for our environment, but from an industrial perspective it is also a tremendous waste of valuable raw materials. To turn this around, Searious Business works with organizations like International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) to build consenses with companies and work together to tackle this truly global issue. IUCN asked Searious Business to help set up the Oceans and Plastics Platform.

In this multistakeholder platform, we work together according to a Framework for Action, including an agreed-upon action plan and timeline. Latest insights from research, academia and public sector are used to further spur innovation with private organizations. This includes organizations like WBCSD, L'Oréal, Nestlé, Philips, Weleda, Kneipp and a great many more.
