, Sisecam Group

An award came from Europe to the activities of Şişecam Group in the field of glass recycling. Şişecam Group has won Silver Prize among 55 projects in the "Environmental and Social Innovation" category of the Sustainability Awards organized by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), with its successful efforts in glass recycling. Şişecam Group was deemed worthy of this award, for its contributions in matters such as resource efficiency, glass recycling and energy efficiency as well as glass recycling capital.

Şişecam Group is continuing to create awareness-raising projects in recycling applications for a sustainable life. Şişecam Group's efforts in glass recycling have been awarded at the 27th annual meeting of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). 

Results of Sustainability Awards organized by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development were announced. Şişecam Group won the Silver Prize among 55 projects in the category of 'Environmental and Social Innovation' of Sustainability Awards for its contributions to glass recycling, in issues such as resource efficiency, glass recycling and energy efficiency and glass recycling capital.

Each year the most successful projects in environmental and social areas in its the entire operational area are being awarded by EBRD in a total of four categories; Sustainable Energy, Climate Flexibility, Environmental and Social Best Practice, Environmental and Social Innovation.  Winners of 2018 awards, in which a total of 55 projects were nominated, were determined after being evaluated by four independent jury members. Candidates were assessed by an independent panel on four criteria: "standards and best practices", "innovation", "visible impact" and "capacity building". The awards found their owners in a ceremony held in Jordan.

Şişecam Group's activities for glass recycling are of great importance in terms of sustainable production. The use of 10 percent cullet as a raw material in glass production reduces raw materials by 12 percent, energy by 2.5 percent and carbon emissions by 5 percent. With glass, which is a 100% recyclable packaging material without any quality loss, it is enough to use a glass bottle cullet as input to produce one glass bottle. By recycling just one glass bottle, electricity saving sufficient enough to run a computer for 25 minutes, and a television for 20 minutes is achieved.
