A global vision.

Plug and Play Sustainability was launched in the heart of Silicon Valley in 2019. In collaboration with the Alliance to End Plastic Waste, we launched the End Plastic Waste Innovation Platform with the goal of ending plastic waste across the entire value chain, from design to end-use. We have accelerated 100+ startups across seven hubs in the following:

  • Silicon Valley
  • Paris
  • Singapore
  • São Paulo
  • Johannesburg
  • Shanghai
  • And, Tokyo

We’ve seen 160+ pilots and $125m in capital deployed to startups as a direct result of the End Plastic Waste Innovation Platform.

Each of the seven programs hosted Selection Day, where 10 startups were selected to join the program, worked closely with the Alliance to End Plastic Waste members and helped end plastic waste once and for all.
