Reframing the Future for Glass
UK homes generate 15% of total UK CO2 emissions. If all buildings used high efficiency glazing, we could reduce that energy consumption by 32%.
That is just one of the ways glass can help us be more sustainable.
British Glass is driving change and innovation in the UK glass industry. It wants 90% of container glass to be recycled by 2030 and advances the use of glass in green solutions, like high-tech glass fibre in wind turbines and lightweight vehicles.
British Glass and the glass industry have set out a strategy to achieve net zero by 2050, and works with UK businesses to harness the sector’s expertise to promote the role of glass in our green future.
