Supply Chain Investment Opportunities to Address Marine Plastic Pollution
Philanthropist Paul G. Allen funded this report to identify impact investment opportunities for those joining the fight to eliminate plastics pollution as a significant contributor to the rapidly deteriorating health of our ocean. Millions of metric tons of plastic are dumped into our ocean annually, and through this report potential investors will better understand how they can most efficiently and effectively help to disrupt the plastics supply chain and prevent plastics pollution in the first place. Mr. Allen’s unique data- and technology-driven approach to some of the world’s toughest challenges catalyzes innovation, improves policy, and accelerates change for the better. He believes this report can have the same effect on the future of our ocean.
