Flat glass in climate-neutral Europe

2050 | Flat Glass in Climate-Neutral Europe

The flat glass sector is indispensable to the massive decarbonisation of the building, transport and energy sectors, which represent the lion’s share of Europe’s CO2 emissions. Flat glass manufacturing is also an energy-intensive activity. The sector takes it as its duty to reduce its own CO2 emissions, which represents a significant challenge in moving towards carbon neutrality. In today’s climate urgency context, the flat glass sector wants to offer its vision of a rapidly actionable virtuous decarbonisation cycle.

Video statement on the Fit for 55 Package

With the release of the so-called Fitfor55 package, the European Commission does not fall short of its ambition. In a video reaction to the package, Bertrand Cazes, Secretary General of Glass for Europe, defined this ‘a turning point and a remarkable moment for a sector like ours’ [the flat glass sector].
