    • Glass industry is part of the energy-intensive industry posing a major challenge to fulfill the CO2 reduction targets of the Paris Climate Agreement
    • British Glass is supporting the industry to decarbonize by improving the resource and energy efficiency of glass products at every stage
    • Guardian Glass is committed to improving the energy efficiency of their manufacturing processes and reducing their use of resources

    Here are a few reasons as to why its important to decarbonize the glass industry:

    1. Climate Impact:
      • Glass production is energy-intensive, as glass production involves melting raw materials (such as sand) at extremely high temperatures, and contributes significantly to greenhouse gas emissions. The industry relies on fossil fuels (such as natural gas) for this.
      • By decarbonizing, the glass industry can reduce its carbon footprint, aligning with global efforts to combat climate change.
    2. Energy Efficiency:
      • Transitioning to cleaner energy sources (such as electricity from renewable sources) can improve energy efficiency.
      • Decarbonization allows the industry to adopt more efficient technologies, reducing waste and energy consumption.
    3. Market Demand:
      • Consumers increasingly seek sustainable products. Companies that prioritize decarbonization gain a competitive edge by meeting this demand.
      • Green certifications and eco-friendly labels enhance market appeal.

    In summary, decarbonizing the glass industry benefits the environment, business, and society.
