Two innovators paving the way to a new economy

Act together, teach together: WWF and PreZero have for years been environmental protection’s dynamic duo

Environmental problems in the 21st century are diverse and complex – with both short and long-term components. It is precisely this diversity that defines the cooperation, first as part of a joint Baltic Sea voyage to recover ghost nets, then extended in 2020 for a further five years and expanded internationally.
