Report: Investment strategies for plastic-free seas

Roughly 8 million metric tons of plastic waste enters our ocean each year. Most of that is trash that is never collected, but instead becomes litter. The lack of effective waste management is one of the greatest challenges we face in tackling this global issue.
An initiative of the Trash Free Seas Alliance®, The Next Wave: Investment Strategies for Plastic Free Seas presents analysis designed to lay out options to more easily attract investment to effective waste management in key regions. The report outlines the challenges and identifies options to attract new investments in developing Asia-Pacific economies (News Release Ocean Conservancy, 14 February 2017).
