To Reduce Plastic Waste
From Entering Our Waterways
Through it’s “Make the Case” university student competitions, CAPP identifies high-impact and under-recognized plastic pollution solution projects or plastic waste reduction projects run either for profit or by non-profit NGOs.
Through a series of phased accelerator programs, we provide sustainability guidance to many organizations, and then help to REPLICATE and SCALE the best ones to the rest of the world

CAPP’s Story Starts with Ocean Recovery Alliance’s January, 2020 Published UN Environment (UNEP)-funded Report , “Creating High-Impact Actions to Reduce Marine Litter”
“Creating High-Impact Actions to Reduce Marine Litter” was a result of global stakeholders (nations, local governments, NGOs, industry, and civil society) being confronted with the challenges of plastic pollution, with not yet enough being done across communities to reduce its impacts. Even though a wide range of current Voluntary Commitments have been initiated, the study was meant to be a ”Wake-up Call” to all of use in order to improve the value and impact of the collective commitments being made.
The unique scorecard and toolkit we created by evaluating over 580 global commitments paves the way for stakeholders to make “Voluntary Commitments 2.0,” which bring more positive impacts to the communities they are meant to serve. Commitments Accelerator for Plastic Pollution (CAPP) has now been established as a new global program under Ocean Recovery Alliance, helping to incubate and facilitate plastic pollution programs around the world.
