4ocean Partnerships

Let’s turn off the tap on plastic pollution!

We’re leading a global revolution to protect our oceans and you’re invited! Join the clean ocean movement and secure the future of your business (and our planet) by partnering with 4ocean to achieve your sustainable development goals.

The business case for sustainability

Did you know that more than 18 billion pounds of plastic enters the ocean every single year? That’s the equivalent of one garbage truck full of plastic being emptied into the ocean every minute!

As consumers become more aware of the environmental, social, and economic impacts of the plastics lifecycle, the more they look to leaders in government and business for solutions. The good news is that innovation in the private sector has the ability to accelerate the rapid change we need to end these interconnected crises. That’s why we’re calling on the global business community to join the clean ocean movement, invest in sustainable innovation, and become leaders in a new circular economy. Together, we can build a more sustainable future where humanity grows alongside nature and not at its expense.
