The Circulate Initiative's
2020 Annual Report

The Circulate Initiative has released its 2020 Annual Report providing an update on its full year progress, accomplishments and outlook for 2021. Despite the challenges of 2020, we continued to support innovators to source, support and scale effective solutions that end plastic leakage into the ocean, especially through the work of The Incubation Network and Urban Ocean.  


We also leveraged our expertise and network of strategic partners to develop insights on the emerging landscape of plastics claims and credits to help brands, investors and others better evaluate the impact potential and role of these new schemes in the fight to prevent plastic leakage into the environment.
