Glass is a widely recyclable and reusable packaging material, but its production and distribution represents a challenge in terms of managing the industry’s carbon emissions.
How can we harness a circular economy for glass while meeting decarbonisation targets? And what more can be done to enhance the collection, recycling, and reuse of glass packaging?
Join our virtual panel on Thursday 9th of June, where speakers from FEVE, Diageo, Ardagh Group, and GreenGlass Recycling will be discussing how the glass packaging industry intends to address these challenges.
