Pilkington UK Sustainability

We’ve been taking huge strides, but the small steps we can all make are just as important on our sustainability journey.  We have an opportunity to make a difference in everything we make, everything we do, every day.   

Because we all have the power to makechange™

Read on to find out how we plan to improve our impact on the environment and society to create a more sustainable future with our teams, partners and customers.


By applying a science-based approach, we can set the best pathway possible to makechange™.  

We aim to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. Together with the NSG Group we’ve already reduced waste to landfill by over 50%* and we’re committed to reducing absolute CO2(e) emissions by 30% for scope 1, 2 & 3 by 2030**.   

Some ways in which we will achieve these: 

  • Switching to renewable energy and decreasing CO2 emissions in our manufacturing processes 
  • Increasing the use of recycled content in all manufacturing process (direct & in-direct materials)  
  • Supporting circularity by diverting over 20%*** more glass from landfill 
  • Implementing responsible sourcing activities within our supply chain with 95% acceptance****  
  • Promoting engagement activities within our local teams and communities 
  • Working with diverse global partners to make a positive impact on the environment and society.
