O-I Glass has published its 2021 Sustainability Report examining its vision to be the most sustainable and chosen supplier of brand building packaging solutions.
The report highlights the refresh of O-I’s business strategy, elevating sustainability within the company while achieving a number of sustainable firsts for the industry.
“While we believe glass packaging is already the most sustainable packaging solution, sustainability at O-I is about more than what we make. It is also about how we make it,” said Andres Lopes, Chief Executive Officer for O-I.
“We enhanced matters, from our approach to governance and management of sustainability to the number of initiatives and quantitative goals. We are excited to share our elevated ambitions and what they mean for O-I and its stakeholders.”
In 2020, the world’s largest container glass manufacturer introduced structural enhancements to deepen and accelerate sustainability progress, including the appointment of its first Chief Sustainability Officer, to create an integrated approach around shared goals and collaborative changes in the company.
Among the new sustainability goals for O-I, recycled content, water reduction, renewable energy and zero waste have been added to the ambitious and aspirational goals to achieve by 2030.
These goals represent a holistic approach to improving energy use, emissions, materials procurement, waste and water.
