Glass, a material with exceptional qualities, infinitely recyclable 100%, without alteration regardless of the number of times it is recycled, is unquestionably one of the most sustainable materials. When it comes to packaging with the primary function of storing and preserving food and beverages, glass ensures ideal preservation of food in a sustainable manner (odorless, migration-free).
Our priority today is to produce healthy and sustainable glass packaging with the best environmental footprint. Although our glass bottle and jar production process generates an important level of energy consumption and CO2 emissions, all of our teams (Industrial, Technical, Research & Development, Energy, Purchasing) are constantly innovating to reduce our environmental impact.
“Re-imagine glass for a sustainable future”. Our purpose sets out our long-term ambition and strategy. It is accompanied by the following three commitments:
of external cullet* integrated
into our production,
i.e. 780,000 tons of CO2 avoided* external cullet = glass from the collection of households and CHR (Cafés, Hotels, Restaurants)
cullet processing centers, for which €12.4 million were invested between 2018 and 2019
of the 2019 R&D budget has been invested to improve the energy efficiency of our furnaces
100% recyclable and infinitely recyclable into new food packaging, glass is at the heart of the circular economy. As a committed player, we aim to increase the rate of use of external cullet in our production by 1% a year between 2018 and 2023 and actively contribute to improving glass collection.
