Product policy

Companies in the glass industry manufacture a wide variety of different glass products. Container glass products are subject to particularly strict environmental sustainability and recyclability requirements. Recyclability also plays an important role in the flat glass industry. 
 
BV Glas accompanies political processes relating to relevant laws and regulations (e.g. on packaging), lifecycle assessments, filling and retail sector initiatives.

Environment

 The BV Glas member companies deal with environmental issues on a daily basis. On the one hand, they have to obtain approval for their production plants and equipment and, on the other, there are environmental issues associated with the production and use of their products. Glass is produced from various raw materials, resulting not only in waste, but also emissions in the air, water, and ground, which is why politicians are increasingly calling for sustainable production practices that conserve natural resources.
 
The glass industry has been satisfying these demands for decades already, and it is a pioneer in efficient technologies and innovative products. The glass industry’s activities play an important role in climate and environmental protection.

Energy and climate

The glass industry is one of the most energy intensive industries in Germany. As such, it is subject to energy and climate policy regulations. These affect the glass industry’s production operations and competitiveness. Since 1970, it has reduced its energy consumption levels by 77 percent, which is close to the maximum energy efficiency that is technically feasible in glass production. 
 
This is one of the reasons why it is dependent on well-considered policy decisions that take the glass industry’s specific circumstances into account. The glass industry will only be able to continue manufacturing in Germany in the long term if it can plan ahead.
