AGC has been recognized as a CDP "A-list” company for "Climate Change" in recognition of its advanced environmental initiatives and proactive information disclosure.
This A-list recognition is based on the annual questionnaire on "climate change" conducted by CDP, an international non-profit organization. CDP uses a detailed and independent methodology to assess companies, allocating a score of A to D- based on the comprehensiveness of disclosure, awareness and management of environmental risks and demonstration of best practices associated with environmental leadership, such as setting ambitious and meaningful targets.
AGC also received certification from the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi ) for its 2030 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets. This is an important independent approval of AGC’s sustainability trajectory.
These goals were certified as “WB2°C (well-below 2°C)”, and are thus certified as science based goals to limit the global average temperature increase from pre-industrial times to well below 2°C.
Our carbon footprint
As part of AGC Glass Europe’s strategy and its environmental target for 2030, the carbon footprint is assessed on a yearly basis. By following the main principles and the standardized framework of the Green House Gas Protocol, we report and account for our corporate GHG emissions across our entire value chain.
Our roadmap to carbon neutrality
AGC's holistic approach to achieve CO2-neutral glass production by 2050, not only includes decarbonising the glass production processes but also eliminating all CO2 emissions from the supply chain upstream of our processes and other indirect emissions.
Using highly efficient melting furnaces
AGC is engaged in a major transformation of the tank technology. The two steps electrification innovation, electro-boosting and then hybrid melting, is a major technology breakthrough.
