How does glass answer society’s need for a sustainable future?

February 07, 2019

Across the world, we have never been as aware as we are now of the impact of human activity on the environment. Whether we’re watching plastics strangling and poisoning our fish, dioxins released by burning waste in Africa, climate change aggravating floods in Bangladesh or wildfires in California, the environment is seldom off our television screens and news media.

As a result, food and drinks makers face concentrated pressure from consumers and governments alike to reduce the environmental impact of their products, especially the packaging. Glass provides a great solution to meet the needs of the circular economy to reduce waste and keep the environment healthy.
