Sustainability deals with global and regional issues concerning the environment, the economy and social responsibility; our sustainability pillars. Ambitious sustainability targets are included in our long term strategic planning. Our aim is to reduce any negative environmental impact whilst remaining economically sustainable and socially responsible.
Ardagh’s goal is to become the leading supplier of inherently sustainable packaging. For instance, a number of our glass facilities operate furnaces that use 90% recycled glass, which is regarded as a benchmark for glass production worldwide. Both glass and metal are permanent materials and are therefore infinitely recyclable without any loss of quality.
