Social Impact

Supporting sustainable communities

We see tremendous opportunity to positively impact the planet and communities where we operate. O-I values, and is committed to, building sustainable communities in which we live and work. We aim to maintain a corporate culture where sustainability and social good are integrated into O-I’s DNA. Our people are encouraged to give back and be actively involved in the improvement of their communities. The financial support provided by our company and the O-I Charities Foundation, and the voluntary charitable leadership offered by thousands of O-I employees around the world, demonstrate this commitment.

Our Commitment to Giving Back

Where We Give
Our Causes

Our work includes supporting parks in our communities, natural conservation organizations, and recycling education initiatives. We pride ourselves on long-standing relationships with like-minded organizations. O-I has promoted glass recycling initiatives in partnership with communities and associations around the world.

O-I Charities Foundation

Our Commitment

The O-I Charities Foundation was established in 1937 and donates more than $1.5 million (USD) annually to charities and non-profit organizations in North America, along with numerous grant programs. Through our robust Employee Matching Gift Program, which matches donations dollar-for-dollar and provides a 2:1 match for educational gifts, the Foundation amplifies employee giving and provides longer-term investments in areas where the company can support broad movements for social change. O-I seeks to maximize the impact of our giving, volunteerism, and partnerships in the community while upholding our commitment to value creation.

Glass4Good™ Recycling: A Foundation for Healthier Communities

Glass4Good™ Recycling is a community-based recycling program that incentivizes glass recycling by enhancing local glass recycling infrastructure with the potential of generating local charitable donations in the communities where our employees live and work. This program is an opportunity to provide glass recycling where it might not be available, but it is also an avenue for O-I to give back to the communities in a way that will encourage glass recycling.
