Ardagh’s targets to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions have been validated by the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

Ardagh Glass Packaging (AGP), a global supplier of recyclable glass packaging solutions, received approval from the SBTi for its GHG emission reduction targets.

SBTi has approved AGP’s plan to reduce absolute Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 42% as consistent with achieving a trajectory to limit global warming to 1.5°C.

The plan to reduce absolute Scope 3 by 12.3% by 2030 meets the SBTi’s criteria for ambitious value chain goals and is in line with best practice.

This supports the United Nations and Paris Climate Agreement of 2015 objective of net zero emissions by 2050.

Alex Winters, Chief Sustainability Officer of AGP, said: "Ardagh is committed to ambitious action in sustainability and continuously improving our infinitely recyclable glass packaging to ensure we are doing our part in the circular economy.”
