Questions and answers about the Ocean Alliance

Many other countries have a national plastics pact, is Ocean Alliance that as well?

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation's Plastics Pact Network gathers national and regional initiatives that all aim to reduce plastic waste and pollution. One of the requirements to enter the Plastics Pact Network is to have the official support of the nation's government. The Ocean Alliance is aligned with the vision and targets of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's Plastics Pact Network but is yet not an official national plastics pact.

Does the Swedish Government support the initiative?

The Swedish Government have decided to engage in and support the European Plastics Pact, where they work at a European level. However, the Swedish Government does not yet support the national initiative Ocean Alliance, even though they are positive about it.

What do you mean with market transformation and to strengthen the transition?

With the Ocean Alliance, we want to support companies, municipalities and other organizations in the transformation and find better solutions so that we as a collective can approach a circular plastics economy. Approaching a circular future requires a change in the way we utilize our resources. Specifically, it's obvious looking at the use of single-use plastics.

How do you make sure that the Ocean Alliance fulfils its purpose?

The function and impact of the Ocean Alliance are evaluated yearly by an external Advisory Board, which is comprised of external experts and NGOs.

How is the Ocean Alliance financed?

The Ocean Alliance is self-financed by the Keep Sweden Tidy Foundation.
