About

Our Mission

Blue Ocean mission is to leverage technology and incentive mechanism to end the post-consumer packaging and food waste crisis. Creating an ecosystem that brings new world order to the waste lifecycle process, advancing the circular economy and making sustainability a growth opportunity.

Strategy & goals

Core Blue Ocean strategy is to take its revolutionary tokenised ecosystem into new and uncontested recovery/reuse of waste space – where no business currently exists. This strategy provides for strong defensibility, powerful network effects and ensures all participants as token holders – backers, investors, eco-innovators, retail partners, supply chain businesses, recyclers and users – are incentivised by the system to contribute and aligned towards a common goal of sustainability and token growth. Creating a win-win for all participants where consumers, businesses and token values increase continuously.

This strategy provides for a holistic solution where all post-consumer product materials can be reused or recovered and repurposed, and hold value. For instance the system allows for the end-of-life reuse of food waste, a 1.6 billion tonne disaster and often the single largest component going into landfills, along with post-consumer food packaging – bioplastics, cardboard, paper. This decreases collection costs, improves composting outcomes and provides a valuable and sustainable resource for farmers to nourish crops and maintain food supply to retail partners. Closing the loop.
