As a material that can be reused and recycled over and over again, glass is an ideal material for a circular economy.

However, it still has to be melted down to produce new bottles or jars. Today, this operation is the main cause of CO2 emissions from our Group’s activities.

Determined to act to make our activities increasingly streamlined and respectful of the environment, we have embarked on a policy of investing in the technology, resources and industrial equipment used in our plants. We are giving ourselves the means to achieve our ambitions and are positioning ourselves as pioneers in our sector.

To reach Net Zero by 2050, our goal is to reduce our CO2 emissions by 46% (1) by 2030 on scopes 1 & 2 in absolute value (compared to 2019).

Since 2021, we have also been working on reducing our scope 3 emissions to keep them below 40% of our total emissions, and we will work closely with our suppliers and clients to achieve this.

Finally, we contribute to the carbon balance of ecosystems by pursuing actions in favour of soil regeneration and biodiversity.

Our actions to decarbonise our activities:
  • Increase the proportion of low-carbon raw materials
  • Optimise the energy consumption of our industrial facilities
  • Develop and invest in low-carbon furnaces
  • Develop renewable or low-carbon forms of energy
  • Reduce our indirect emissions
  • Contribute to soil regeneration and biodiversity preservation

  1. Target validated by the Science-based Target Initiative (STBi). Jointly initiated in June 2015 by the Carbon Disclosure Project, the United Nations Global Compact and the World Resources Institute, its primary objective is to meet the targets set by COP 21.
  2. Emissions produced directly by the company (scope 1) and indirectly via the energy it consumes (scope 2).
