How can and will glass reduce its CO2 footprint?

This is a recording from our Sustainable Wine Packaging online conference that took place on 23rd June, 2021.

The glass industry has come under pressure on its CO2 footprint in recent years. Bottle weight has become the most significant factor in climate change in wine as a result of the footprint of glass. Meanwhile alternative formats are getting a lot of attention. However, glass is here to stay for much of the wine industry. So how can it, and is it, reducing its footprint? And what can wine bottle sourcing businesses do, to support lower carbon glass? We will discuss here.
