“To make the world a brighter place”

The AGC Mission


Environment is one of the 4 shared values of the AGC group and an essential part of the Company's Social Responsibility. AGC Glass Europe is taking its environmental responsibility seriously and turned this responsibility into a challenge: a challenge to achieve the best balance between sustainable development and economy, and to make improvements in terms of profitability, comfort and safety, aesthetics and environmental impact.

Our environmental policy has a double focus:

  • We aim to be at the forefront in developing new products with better environmental performance during their lifetime.
  • We aim to manufacture these products using the best available technologies from the environmental point of view, in order to minimise the environmental impact.

Today 50% of our R&D budget is devoted to sustainable products, solutions and manufacturing.

Based on this, we have developed a holistic approach to fully assess our environmental footprint.
Life Cycle Analysis, measurement of carbon footprint and the Cradle to Cradle CertifiedCM program for products  and the implementation of a sound Environmental Management System are the ways used to assess our integrated environmental approach.
