British Glass publish industry-wide net zero strategy

, British Glass

British Glass, the representative body for the UK glass sector, in consultation with its members has today (19 July) published a strategy that sets out the glass industries potential route to net zero carbon emissions.

The strategy follows on from the industries decarbonisation roadmap in 2015 in conjunction with BEIS that was based on achieving a reduction of 80% CO2 by 2050. Following the governments agreement to the Paris Agreement, British Glass has worked with members and industry partners to devise a strategy to achieve net zero.

The strategy outlines the options to enable glass manufacturers to reduce combustion and process emissions, as well as improving energy efficiency. It also sets out how glass can support other sectors to decarbonise.

Important factors to consider, such as the key barriers and challenges, are highlighted. Key barriers to success include financial viability due to the high costs of alternative fuels, access to alternative fuels and availability of cullet (recycled glass).

The strategy and aspirations of the industry also need to be supported and protected with appropriate policy by government if the sector is to succeed in decarbonising. British Glass has set out policy recommendations for energy costs, energy infrastructure, decarbonisation technologies, circular economy and the use of glass products in other sectors.

Dave Dalton, British Glass CEO commenting on the strategy, said:

“This is an exciting, but challenging road ahead for UK glass manufacturers on the journey to net zero but we are committed and well placed to achieve this, provided the industry is supported with relevant policy to overcome the barriers to success.”

“We are confident that the measures presented in the net zero strategy will outline the best route to both reducing and eventually eliminating carbon emissions from our industry, but it is essential that we receive the support required from government to fulfill our ambitions.”

“I look forward to what is to come in taking our industry to net zero.”

The strategy launch event is planned for 11-12 on the 20th July, please register here to attend.
