Climate Change Strategy

To SBTi Reduction Target and Beyond

2017-2030 Journey

As the first glass packaging company to obtain an approved Science-Based Target initiative GHG emissions reduction goal,* our journey to a lower-carbon future begins with working to achieve our 2030 target to reduce GHG emissions by 25%. Over the next 10 years, our strategy to attain that goal involves four key levers.

Beyond 2030: Journey to Net Zero

Like many other industries that depend on heat for manufacturing processes, our path to net-zero involves incorporating lower-carbon fuels—as they become commercially available—into our operation. While increased electrification of furnace heat is a bridge to net zero, the main focus of our plan is to combine the existing sustainability benefits of our MAGMA technology, like on-off capability and co-location potential, with our work to prepare the next generations of MAGMA to use lower-carbon fuels.
