O-I Glass Sustainability Scorecard

Our GoalsOur CommitmentsOur Performance
Increase recycled content to 50% average by 2030. O-I is taking a tailored approach to increase recycled content rates across its enterprise network as rates vary significantly by geography.Total external cullet by metric ton packed is 38% on average.
1% decreased from 2017 base year
Approved SBTi target to reduce GHG emissions 25% by 2030 (interim target of 10% by 2025).Scopes 1 & 2 (market-based) –6,136,514 metric ton of CO2e
13.67% reduction from 2017 base year
Renewable energy is a pillar in our strategy to lower carbon emissions. Our goal is to reach 40% renewable energy use by 2030 and to reduce total energy consumption by 9%.Global renewable energy volume was 13% for 2020
As part of our journey toward zero injuries, we are committed to a 50% improvement of our Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) by 2030.Improved Total Recordable Incident Rate to 1.98
30% reduction from 2019
We see tremendous opportunity to positively impact the planet and communities where we operate. We will collaborate with customers, NGOs, suppliers and local leaders to make glass recycling available in 100% of our locations.91% of our communities in which our plants operate have access to glass recycling
Achieve sustainability balance, together, by aligning our supply chain with our 2030 sustainability vision and goals.Partnered with EcoVadis, to better monitor our supplier’s sustainability performance and facilitate our supplier assessment.
NEW
Continue to build a diverse and inclusive environment where people feel welcomed to create a better future for themselves, each other, and O-I. We are focused on increasing all aspects of diversity across our team.Female representation in workforce declined slightly to 17%
2% decrease from 2019
Reinvent and reimagine glass-making so the circularity of glass meets the potential of our MAGMA melting technology, low-carbon alternative fuels, and light-weighted glass packaging.Currently operating a MAGMA prototype in our Innovation Center and a pilot in Illinois and a manufacturing line in Holzminden, Germany
Reduce the amount of natural resources used, reduce the generation of waste by reuse, and recycling as we drive towards a “Zero Waste” organization.Currently, all regions track waste in various databases. We are working to integrate all regions into this system.
NEW
We are committed to reducing our global water usage 25% by 2030, prioritizing operations in higher risk areas.Water risk screening using the WRI Aqueduct tool. In 2020, 25 plants were in high and extremely high water stressed areas. 

The majority of facilities meter water usage. Monitoring and metering improvements are underway to develop accurate, standardized data for all facilities.
