Glaston Commits to Science-Based Emissions Reduction Targets
Glaston has joined the growing number of companies committed to setting science-based emissions reduction targets. The company is currently working on its next emissions target, which will cover the entire value chain and support the goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 °C in accordance with the Paris Agreement.
Glaston’s Sustainable Business Strategy
Sustainable business is a focus area in Glaston’s strategy. Last year, the company achieved its first emissions reduction target, reducing its CO2 emissions by 50% in relation to net sales compared to the 2020 level. Glaston is now focused on reducing the electricity consumption of its products to continue promoting sustainable development.
Energy-Efficient Glass Production
Glass plays a crucial role in achieving energy efficiency targets for buildings, and Glaston’s technology enables the production of more energy-efficient glass structures. Tempered or heat-strengthened glass is also a key component of solar panels, which contribute to the growth of solar energy and emission-free electricity production. To support the SBT initiative, Glaston is committed to developing even more energy-efficient equipment for its customers.
Collaboration for a Greener Future
The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) is a collaboration between various organizations committed to reducing emissions. Glaston encourages its customers and suppliers to set emissions reduction targets as well, recognizing that working together is the only way to achieve decisive results in the fight against climate change.
