We are raising the standard for ESG investments

By creating full transparency and social engagement into credit generation and it’s real impact. We have designed a tool that not only seeks to aliviate the impact of plastic in marine ecosystems, but also creates income opportunities for ocean defenders who are at the forefront of marine ecosystem regeneration through plastic waste collection.

UP is the first tech platform to quantify, audit, and notorise data from plastic waste collections. The collected data is simultaneously used for scientific research on the impact of plastic on marine ecosystems. this research is done together with bazaruto center for scientific studies.

Let's See How It Works


Start Plastic Collection

Sign up as a waste collector on our website and click on Start, from this moment we’ll start collecting your data!

Capture Proof

Make sure that you complete our plastic collecting protocol required steps, so our AI can achieve a clean audit.

Get Rewarded

When your data has been approved, it is time to get rewarded for your impactful work!

Our Technology

By using technology and science we register data (IOT devices), audit(AI) and notarise the data (blockchain). When you collect plastic from a marine ecosystem using your phone, UP registers this data. Think about geolocation, duration of time, photos and way more.

Then we classify and quantify the collected plastic using AI. Based on the scientific studies of BCSS, we can calculate the positive impact you, as an ocean defender, have made. We notarise the data using Blockchain, making the data immutable and traceable for all. Finally we exchange the ownership of the data using Blockchain between the user that bought the credits and the ocean guardian.

In this way we achieve our three goals. Regenerating the marine ecosystems by taking out plastic, giving agency to locals by fairly rewarding them for their efforts and making companies act upon their footprint, getting a step closer to the ESGs.

Our Primary Goals

Ocean Regeneration

Regenerating marine ecosystems by taking out plastic. One of the primary goals is to regenerate marine ecosystems by removing plastic from the oceans. Plastic pollution is a huge environmental concern that poses a threat to marine life, habitats, and the overall health of the oceans.

Local Empowerment

Giving agency to locals by fairly rewarding them for their efforts. By actively engaging local communities, such as coastal residents, or volunteers, in the cleanup process, we want to empower them in the valuable work they do in protecting the ocean.

Corporation ESG Responsibility

Making companies act upon their footprint, getting a step closer to the ESGs. The third goal is to encourage companies to take responsibility for their environmental footprint and move towards aligning with Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles.
