The European glass packaging industry sets in motion “Close the Glass Loop” – a major stewardship programme to boost glass ‘collection for recycling’ rates to 90% by 2030 in the EU. The move comes as a proactive response to new EU rules to increase net recycling targets for glass packaging to 75% by 2030. 

Today, over 76% of glass packaging placed on the European market is collected for “bottle to bottle” recycling, already putting the circularity of glass in a league of its own.
