Guidance for communicating hotspots: The effective use of sustainability information to drive action and improve performance

This protocol for the appropriate use and communication of sustainability information derived from hotspots analysis is a companion to the publication 'Hotspots Analysis: a methodological framework' (in particular step 7 of the framework, that involves presenting and communicating the shortlisted hotspots to a wider audience). It provides guiding principles on how to communicate the results of a hotspots analysis and gives examples for visualization of the information. The protocol is aligned with the UN Environment Guidelines for providing product sustainability information.
