O-I awarded for sustainable practices

O-I Glass has received two significant acknowledgments for its continued sustainability efforts.

EcoVadis upgraded O-I’s rating to Silver (2021: Bronze), and Sustainalytics awarded the company with an ESG Regional Top-Rated performer classification.

The silver rating places O-I in the top 25% of all the companies evaluated by EcoVadis. A silver designation demonstrates awareness and respect that companies have for sustainability, business ethics, the environment, human rights and sustainable procurement.

As an ESG Regional Top-Rated performer, O-I was recognised by Sustainalytics as a strong outperformer in managing ESG risks with a ‘low risk’ score.

Andres Lopez, O-I CEO, said: “Our vision is to be the most innovative, sustainable, and chosen supplier for brand-building packaging solutions. […] We have taken bold action in how we define and measure sustainability in the production of that sustainable packaging as we work to re-invent the industry.”

In 2020, O-I appointed its first Chief Sustainability Officer and developed a sustainability network across the company’s global footprint.

O-I was also the first glass packaging company to receive approval from the Science-Based Targets initiative for its emissions reduction goal.

The company has continued to expand its sustainability initiatives, as well as doubling the number of goals under these strategic initiatives as was documented in the release of its most recent sustainability report.
