Minderoo Foundation is a modern philanthropic organisation. We take on tough, persistent issues with the potential to drive massive change. We incubate ideas and accelerate impact. We push the limits of what is believed possible. Minderoo Foundation is independent, forward thinking and seeks effective, scalable solutions. We are one of Asia’s largest philanthropies, with AUD $2 billion committed to a range of global initiatives. Plastic is in our communities, rivers and oceans. It is in our water, air, rain and snow, and it is also in our bodies. Plastic pollution is one of the biggest, most urgent threats facing our planet and our health. Our vision is for a world without plastic pollution. We aim to end plastic leakage to nature and to accelerate transition towards a circular plastics economy – which would see the current ‘take-make-waste’ approach transformed to an era of plastic reuse and recycling. We seek to increase transparency across the plastics supply chain to help industry, investors, governments and consumers make more informed decisions about how plastics are funded, produced, consumed and disposed of. We encourage the public, industry, and government to take action, to use less plastic, and to support progress towards a circular economy for plastic. We invest in and incubate technologies and innovations that drive down the cost of plastic recycling, create alternatives to plastic, and enable the recovery of plastic from nature, including from the ocean.
