O-I Glass is among the world’s leading, sustainable producers of glass bottles and jars for food and beverage companies. The company vision is to be the most innovative, sustainable, chosen supplier of glass packaging solutions.
“O-I has innovated and transformed how glass packaging is made and sold,” said Chief Sustainability Officer Randy Burns. “True sustainability depends on continuously transforming everything from the fuels, processes, and technologies we use to the relationships we have with our suppliers, customers, communities, and our nearly 25,000 employees.”
Glass is made from a few basic ingredients and has localized supply chains. It is already widely recycled and has been for decades. Glass is an infinitely recyclable material, inert and does not raise ocean pollution, waste and food contact issues of other materials.
O-I sustainability journey is about more than the material itself – it’s also about how we make it.
The 2022 Sustainability Report highlights the company’s systems-based approach to sustainability, including improved energy efficiency, upgrading furnaces with gas-oxygen technology, advancing light-weighting of glass packaging, creating more resilient supply chains and partnering with stakeholders to advance glass circularity.
