About Us

Ocean Recovery Alliance

Ocean Recovery Alliance is a Hong Kong and California-based non-profit focused on bringing innovation, technologies, creativity and collaborations together to address some of the challenges that face the ocean and our broader environment. The group is an umbrella organization which operates and organizes a variety of sub-projects, some of which have their own operating teams, budgets and objectives. In some cases, these projects may complement one another, and in others, they will be stand-alone. Two of the projects within the group, the Plastic Disclosure Project and the Global Alert platform, were announced at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) in 2010, and are focused on innovative prevention programs for plastic waste reduction. Ocean Recovery Alliance is a member of both the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)'s Global Partnership on Marine Litter, and the World Bank's Global Partnership for Oceans. The Ocean Recovery Alliance is also a founding member of the Ocean Conservancy’s “Trash Free Seas Alliance” which was announced at the Clinton Global Initiative in 2011. Ocean Recovery Alliance is registered as Ocean Recovery Alliance, Inc. a 501c3 non-profit in California, and Ocean Recovery Alliance Limited as a Hong Kong-registered limited liability company, with tax-exempt status from the Hong Kong Internal Revenue Department as a charitable organization.

Plasticity Forum

Plasticity Forum is a business conference focused on the future of plastic, and where the leaders are going with innovation, design, materials, recycling and solutions. It was first launched at the Rio+20 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, and has since been held in Hong Kong, New York, Portugal, Shanghai, London, Dallas, Los Angeles and Sydney in October, 2017. This event brings together a wide range of experts across the many sectors within the plastic spectrum of use, creation, waste and new "resource" management.
