  2. Presentation on three key messages which provide practical action points on the provision of sustainability information on plastic packaging. 
  3. Business, government, standard-setting bodies and labelling organisations responses to the key messages.

The Can I Recycle This? A Global Mapping and Assessment of Standards, Labels and Claims on Plastic Packaging provides five recommendations for clearer and more effective communications on plastic packaging and highlights that work is needed to improve communications about materials, production, recyclability and disposal of plastic packaging.  Three key messages and five case studies have been developed for relevant stakeholders to improve the landscape of consumer information on plastic packaging to reduce confusion.
