As forward-looking innovative providers of state-of-the-art products and technologies, Glass for Europe members believe that it is essential to achieve balanced solutions that are sustainable from an economic, environmental and social standpoint.
In this context Glass for Europe is particularly interested in the following European policies:
Energy efficiency in light of glass' contribution to energy savings
EU initiatives aimed at lowering the environmental impact of manufacturing and strengthening innovation in sustainable production
Legislation that aims to enhance the quality of glass products and their distribution
Besides, Glass for Europe is involved in the discussion on the development of standards for glass products and the subsequent CE marking. Where relevant, the flat glass industry also develops codes of practices.
