Saverglass releases progress in reducing its carbon footprint

Saverglass has reported progress on its commitment to sustainability. Details of its progress are released in the "Saverglass Corporate Social Responsibility Report."

"Saverglass has been working towards accomplishing its corporate social responsibility for more than 20 years. We have taken concrete steps that will help us continue to be a force of positive impact to the people we serve, including our customers, employees, suppliers, and communities," said Régis Maillet, Director of Marketing and Communications. "Guided by our core values, we remain steadfast in our commitment to advance our sustainability vision of reducing emissivity by 2035 and carbon neutrality by 2050."

The company objective is to produce its bottles sustainably by limiting the resources consumed and the waste generated. In addition to using cullet, a recycled material, at Saverglass, the Group strives to optimise how raw materials are used in manufacturing and decorating its bottles. Between 2015 and 2021, the percentage of cullet incorporated into products rose by 9%, and the teams are working to obtain premium quality glass while honouring the Group's commitment to a 9% increase in the amount of cullet used in coloured glass products by 2025 (compared to 2020).

The Group is on track to reduce emissions of its manufacturing processes by 45% before 2035 and by 36% across our entire value chain (Scopes 1, 2, and 3). Ultimately, achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. The share of its 'eco-design' products within the Saverglass collection of bottles has increased by more than three points in turnover and quantity in one year, reaching 20% and 27%, respectively, versus total, while maintaining its characteristics related to product differentiation.
