Increased supply-chain visibility helps companies communicate positive sustainability efforts

Los Angeles (June 1, 2023) – Oceanworks®, the world’s most robust plastic-action platform, today launched the Oceanworks Plastic Action DashboardTM, giving organizations tools to measure, reduce, track and communicate their plastic-action initiatives. The Dashboard offers complete access to orders, metrics, marketing, and compliance information in one place. This is important for increasing visibility, as a growing number of companies look to reduce their plastic footprint by decreasing plastic usage, incorporating recycled plastics and offsetting their footprint with plastic credits.

Oceanworks Track and Trace has been a crucial tool to reduce supply-chain risk, utilizing blockchain technology to provide chain-of-custody assurance and visibility. Oceanworks Guaranteed® brand partners will now have access to the Dashboard to view order details, advanced impact metrics, and resources down to order-level detail for both Material and IMPAC+ by OceanworksTM programs. Additionally, filters and dynamic calculations allow organizations to organize their program data for the purposes of reporting and marketing campaigns.

Oceanworks uses blockchain technology to document chain of custody and reduce supply-chain risk for all of its Oceanworks Guaranteed® projects. The Plastic Action Dashboard provides Oceanworks brand partners the ability to visualize blockchain information, maps for tracking material movement, and impact metrics that aid in telling their story.


“Today, transparency is more important than ever, as consumers want to know where their products originate and understand the impact of their purchase decisions. We are thrilled to give brands easy access to the very real stories of their plastic reduction initiatives,” said Vanessa Coleman, CEO of Oceanworks. “Our Plastic Action Dashboard arms our partners with everything they need to effectively and transparently communicate their impact.”

The Dashboard acts as a hub for Oceanworks’ customers to access vital project information. Procurement documentation, marketing resources, and compliance information are compiled, allowing streamlined cross-department communication. Project information can be seamlessly accessed and shared to maximize the overall initiative and encourage internal collaboration.

Every year, an estimated 11 million-plus metric tonnes of plastic enter the ocean, and millions more enter the environment. Oceanworks creates new markets and opportunities for mismanaged plastic waste.

Backed by the Oceanworks Guarantee and Oceanworks Track & Trace, Oceanworks’ network of collectors, reclaimed plastic suppliers and manufacturers enables quality, reliability, and traceability at scale. With the addition of the Plastic Action Dashboard, Oceanworks brings new levels of value to its customers by offering the ability to both visualize their blockchain data as well as conceptualize the impact of their overall plastic action campaign.
