At O-I, we see tremendous opportunity to positively impact the planet and communities where we operate. Our ambition is for glass containers to stay in the value chain, rather than end up in landfills or the environment. We also aspire to make glass containers for our customers that have a significantly smaller environmental footprint.

O-I is innovating to build sophisticated ecosystems that drive glass recycling and increase recycled content in our products. This is not something we can do alone. To see increases in glass recycling, capture more glass, and route it to our furnaces, there needs to be engagement across the glass value chain. We are investing and working hard to drive collaboration between stakeholders in the value chain. We have created partnerships to drive recycling, reduce consumer waste, and conserve resources.
