Adrian Curry, managing director of Encirc, has been appointed president of British Glass for a two year term.
The appointment will see Mr Curry join the organisation’s board and work with his industry colleagues to raise the profile of the industry as a whole, effective 1 January 2017.
Mr Curry said he was looking forward to working closely with the board to promote glass as a material.
“A key focus of my term will be driving the industry to become more sustainable, and in particular meeting the commitment to the Government’s Industrial Decarbonisation & Energy Efficiency Roadmap. The aim of an 80% carbon reduction by 2050 is achievable, and some manufacturers, including Encirc, are already setting an example for other industries to follow.”
