In September 17 and 18 as well as October 20 and 21, Glass for Europe was in Strasbourg creating new relationships with freshly elected MEPs and congratulating the incumbent ones for their confirmation. A personal meeting is the most appropriate way to educate MEPS about flat glass, an essential material for buildings, transport vehicles as well as other applications such as solar panels, electronics and appliances.
The new parliamentary term will be central for the flat glass industry. Legislative proposals on climate and energy policy are already at the top of the EU political agenda. During this legislation, crucial decisions will have to be taken to foster circular economy, reduce energy consumption, and to maximize all sectors’ contributions to the transition to a low-carbon economy. The fight against climate change is at a turning point and global efforts must be stepped up. Glass for Europe firmly believes that the decisions that will be taken in the coming years will offer a unique opportunity for Europe to demonstrate that the transition can be economically, socially and environmentally mutually beneficial.
