Our planet is in need of environmental solutions, and we don’t have time to waste. Today, there are brilliant people creating solutions at Brightmark that can change our course and renew our world.

We started in 2016 as a group of engineers who decided to turn our attention from other corporate ventures to being part of some of the most transformative innovations in our fight for the environment.

Through science-first approaches and powerful partnerships, Brightmark is transforming organic waste into renewable natural gas and creating innovative approaches to plastics renewal. And there’s more to come.

By 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. The IPCC estimates that we have fewer than 11 years to stave off 1.5°C of global warming.
