Release of 2022-2023 Corporate Social Responsibility Report Reflects Ongoing Commitment to Emissivity Reduction by 2035 and Carbon Neutrality by 2050

Saverglass logoFairfield, CA – March 6, 2024 – Saverglass, the world’s leading manufacturer specializing in the production and decoration of luxury and high-end glass bottles for the wine and spirits industry, today released its advancements in its sustainability roadmap, underscoring the company’s unwavering commitment to addressing climate change within the wine and spirits glass bottle packaging sector.

Saverglass’ progress is detailed in the “Saverglass Corporate Social Responsibility Report (CSR) 2022-2023.” This comprehensive report showcases Saverglass’ commitment to sustainability in glass production, manufacturing, and decoration across calendar year 2023. The initiatives encompass a transformative approach across scopes 1, 2, and 3 to reduce the company’s carbon footprint, a dedicated focus on business innovation, acknowledgment of sustainability efforts by globally recognized third-party institutions, prioritization of workplace safety for its employees, and active support for local communities worldwide. 

Saverglass officially became part of the Orora Group in December 2023, following the completion of a successful acquisition process. Saverglass’ sustainability targets are in line with, and in some instances in advance of, Orora’s sustainability targets, as reflected by its Science-Based Target initiative certification.

“This past year marked yet another stride forward for us. As we persist in our dedication to premium quality and environmental goals, Saverglass remains deeply engaged in reshaping our industrial processes—a commitment that spans into the future,” said Jean-Marc Arrambourg, President and Chief Executive Officer at Saverglass. “As we enter a new chapter in our company’s journey as part of the Orora Group, our mission remains steadfast: to lead the charge in right-weighting within the industry, breaking barriers, and setting new benchmarks. Furthermore, we are steadfast in our mission to support and empower our wine and spirits clients as they journey towards sustainability.”

Sustainability progress in the 2022-2023 CSR report highlights:

  • By transitioning the electricity supply of its Mexican plant to nuclear power, Saverglass has successfully reduced the business’ overall global carbon emissions by 6%.
  • The business is making strong progress in reducing emissions across its manufacturing processes and has established 2035 targets for the entire value chain. This encompasses an objective of achieving a 50% reduction in CO2 emissions from industrial processes (scopes 1 and 2) and a 32% reduction in scope 3 emissions.
  • In 2023, the first trials were carried out for the initial iteration of a low-carbon hybrid furnace, signifying the introduction of a new energy mix.

  • For the second consecutive year, Saverglass has proudly secured the Silver Award from Ecovadis, a global independent Sustainability Ratings Provider. This recognition positions the Group among the top 25% of the most commendable companies for sustainability during 2022-2023, globally.
