Our engagement also emphasises the opportunity present and we are excited to see innovative packaging materials and technologies emerging. With the rapidity of change in public attitudes towards plastics, manufacturers of alternatives and providers of infrastructure solutions could be examples of stakeholders that can realise a significant business opportunity. Going forward, we will continue engagement on this issue within these sectors, but will also broaden out to companies within the household and personal care sectors, as well as others that are exposed. We want to see commitments where they don’t exist already, but now implementation is key. We will be looking for interim measures as well, to keep building the momentum to act, and will monitor progress.
