The Ocean Cleanup provides data and knowledge from scientific research and field operations for governments and institutions to consider when discussing new policies and legal frameworks to regulate plastic pollution.

We were recently granted Consultative Status by the United Nations, which will allow us to have a voice and play a role in formal deliberations with UN bodies, NGOs, and member state governments. The international community is currently negotiating a new United Nations Treaty on plastic pollution and conserving marine biological diversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction.

In every project we initiate worldwide, we seek partnerships with civic and private waste management authorities and strive to ensure the waste caught by the Interceptor is managed responsibly.

In times of globalization, we all share the responsibility to create a better global framework and a cleaner environment for the next generation
