Innovation Forum

 Think Beyond Plastic™  is a social impact venture that reduces the impact of plastic pollution by harnessing the forces of entrepreneurship and the power of markets to do good. We incubate ideas and accelerate businesses that measurably reduce plastic pollution.


The Think Beyond Plastic Forum engineers the innovation eco-system  with focus on plastic pollution and its impacts. It recognizes and incubates technologies; it focuses innovation on key problem areas and leads thought leadership for public policies and economic instruments to support innovation.   


The Forum directs innovation towards "hot spots" of plastic pollution, where consumption is the highest and market failures are the greatest such as disposable plastic, plastic medical waste, ocean plastic, with market focus on food services, food packaging, retail, personal care products, construction and transportation, etc.
