On this page you can find the story of the platform, know who is behind PLASTEAX, our mission and our journey.
Powered by EA - Environmental Action, PLASTEAX has been imagined by a group of sustainability experts specialized on plastic pollution and data.
Coming from the Life Cycle Thinking, we have been at the forefront of developing methodologies to account for waste, access its impact, and integrate it into decision-making frameworks.
We believe that transparency, disclosure and accountability, as well as collaboration between public and private sector is essential to success, and that citizens and NGOs have a key role to play in demanding impactful action, now.
Our mission is to enable and empower all organizations working on resolving the plastic pollution crisis, by providing transparent plastic leakage and waste management metrics.
WHO WE ARE
