Pilkington Mirai™ verified as the lowest embodied carbon architectural glass

Pilkington Mirai™ architectural glass manufactured by the NSG Group, has been independently verified as having 52 percent less embodied carbon, certifying it as the lowest carbon glass of its kind.

The independent verification comes from a new Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) now available for Pilkington Mirai™, which was launched in October last year.

The glass was developed following a series of world-first proof-of-concept trials of alternative fuels in glassmaking by the NSG Group. The pioneering trials were completed as the group works towards its Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) certified target of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050.

Kristian Chalmers, Global Strategic Commercial Manager in Architectural Glass SBU, said, “Verification of Pilkington Mirai™ as the lowest carbon glass of its kind represents a major step forward for the built environment on its journey towards a new era of low embodied carbon buildings.

“The glass enables building designers to immediately improve the carbon impact of their projects, while still offering the same attributes and performance expected from regular architectural glass. The EPDs for Pilkington Mirai™ and our broader portfolio, offers architects, developers and asset owners glass that will be transformational in helping them to achieve their carbon objectives.”
