Curaçao has joined the CAPP program, as one of its first partners, to help incubate and facilitate local, regional and global projects for reducing plastic pollution.


Willemstad, November 2020


In a world of growing environmental concerns and challenges, the Commitments Accelerator for Plastic Pollution (CAPP) is a new global program which brings together transparency, community and action to reduce and eliminate plastic pollution.  The Caribbean island of Curaçao is one of the three partners to launch the CAPP program, representing the Caribbean region, and becoming part of CAPP’s international community which convenes to improve strategies, projects, outcomes, and research for reducing plastic waste.  


CAPP’s team of experts on plastic pollution, island economies, network design and collaboration , is pleased to announce its first three collaborating nations for the program, which along with Curaçao, include Fiji and Seychelles. Each of these “flagship” nations will bring CAPP’s knowledge, learning and programming back to their regions.  


Any organizations (corporate, government, NGO, academic, investor or institution) will be welcome in the CAPP program, a global community and a diverse set of stakeholders.  CAPP offers a digital platform for learning, tracking and scoring, applied knowledge for replicable processes, and action learning on topics of development, governance, community-building, science and the monitoring of plastic pollution. 


“Curaçao is proud to be an early collaborator with the CAPP Program”. The Government of Curaçao believes that this endeavor is fully aligned with the national environmental policy’s objectives of reducing plastic wastes, creating circularity, and continuing to protect the nature and environment in particular through its contribution in supporting technically all local environmental initiatives.  It is also fully aligned with SDG 12, targets 12.4 and 12.5.


“Curaçao has been an innovator in the sustainable blue economy for many years, so our collaboration comes at no surprise. We are delighted to work with Curacao and other islands to create impact that will inspire the rest of the world” explained Arno Boersma, founding partner of social enterprise Island Impact.  

“It is a wonderful opportunity to be have early collaborators Curaçao, Fiji and Seychelles join the CAPP program, and we look forward to working with them on innovations and solutions for plastic in its second life, so that plastic doesn’t become waste,” said Douglas Woodring, Founder and Managing Director of Ocean Recovery Alliance, an NGO that is committed to creating strategic, long-term solutions to reduce plastic pollution on land and water.
