About OBP

ZERO PLASTIC OCEANS is an ONG registered in France and founded in 2019 by experienced professionals in the certification, solid waste management, environment and marine biology fields. Concerned by the ever-increasing plastic pollution of the environment and the ocean in particular. The founders started a model for companies to finance the collection of Ocean Bound Plastic (called ZPO Initiative). The cornerstone of ZPO¬īs Initiative was a certification dedicated to the collection of Ocean Bound Plastic.

The project later evolved in completing the certification to cover both the recycling and plastic neutrality value chains to form the OBP Certification Program.

ZPO is the developer and owner (standard setter) of the Ocean Bound Plastic Certification Program
