Increase recycled content to 50% average by 2030. O-I is taking a holistic approach to increase recycled content rates across its enterprise network, as rates vary significantly by geography.
Our Recycled Content Vision
At O-I we know that glass is never trash, which is why it is an ideal package for the circular economy. We are working towards improving recycling, increasing recycled content in our products, and building sustainable communities by developing recycling ecosystems around our operations. Our long-term roadmap involves collaborating with processors, suppliers and customers to solving for increased local collection, processing, and use opportunities.
