Session title: Sustainable Packaging: Moving beyond Recycling Labels
Session description: Worsening recycling rates and consumer confusion have placed a renewed focus on recycling practices. The three core recycling principles (reduce, reuse and recycle) have emerged as an alternative to standard recycling labels and has driven expectations for industry and regulators to show commitments beyond recycling labels through packaging reformulations, better labelling and circular initiatives. This presentation will cover how companies have navigated consumers’ shopping behaviour coupled with the increased scrutiny on single-use plastic and discuss prospects for industry players.
