There is no denying that the world’s climate is changing, and we are committed to a long-term transformation of the industry to become carbon neutral. Our vision is to produce climate-neutral glass packaging that supports a sustainable future – for the planet, people and society.
To achieve our objective, we have set four priority areas: sustainability and climate neutrality, circular economy, life cycle assessment, and health and safety.
Glass is a permanent material that can be recycled, reused and refilled – avoiding waste, reducing CO2 emissions, and protecting natural resources.
The European Container Glass manufacturing is a genuine circular model, which fits with the EU’s ambition to build a circular economy. Explore our positions and policies on the Circular Economy.
Glass is virtually inert and impermeable, making it one of the healthiest packaging materials. It is recognised as safe by the FDA (GRAS) and EU REACH regulations.
The Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a method for evaluating the environmental impact of a product over its entire “life cycle”. Explore our positions and policies on LCA.
