Why Orora Glass is a sustainable choice

Glass is infinitely recyclable  ✓

  • Glass is a truly sustainable material that can be recycled endlessly by crushing, blending, and melting it together with sand and other starting materials. Doing so benefits manufacturers, the environment, and ultimately your consumer.

Powered by renewable energy  ✓

  • Our glass facility in South Australia is 100% wind powered! Orora has long-term renewable energy agreements that cover volumes equivalent to 80% of our electricity requirements in Australia.

We're a large-scale recycler  ✓

  • Every year, Orora recycles thousands of tonnes of glass collected by Australian CDS schemes into new wine and beer bottles. We recycle ~80% of South Australia’s Container Deposit Scheme (CDS) and recently started collecting waste glass from Western Australia's CDS.

We're increasing our recycled content  ✓

  • We are striving to increase cullet usage to over 70%. By using recycled cullet, we help prevent waste going into landfill and create new wine and beer bottles that are less energy and carbon intensive. We’re also building an advanced glass beneficiation plant which will increase the amount of recycled content in our glass packaging even further

Closing the loop on glass  ✓

  • Working closely with our customers, we have developed a number of closed-loop recycling systems. 100% of the cullet we collect goes back into the furnace at Orora Glass, where it is made into new bottles.

Making the most of the sun  ✓

  • Orora has installed five solar arrays at four sites across Australia to collectively generate around 770 MWh and offset ~487 tonnes of CO2e pa.

Innovating for our planet  ✓

  • Orora is a member of the APCO glass working group and an International Partners in Glass Research (IPGR) member. We are currently working on international research projects to find even more ways to reduce the impact of glass manufacturing on our planet. We also recently announced our intention to build an advanced glass beneficiation plant at our Gawler site in South Australia.
