    Post Time:Nov 15,2022Classify:Company NewsView:986

    O-I embraces the opportunity to collaborate with other companies and engage directly with policymakers and trade associations to positively influence sustainability public policy. We are active members of a number of industry, packaging, recycling, and public policy organizations around the world. Through decades of activity and leadership in these organizations, we seek to advance the interests of rigid packaging on various strategic issues and mitigate risks to our business and sustainability strategies.

    As a leader in the packaging industry, O-I also remains committed to providing leadership and advocacy to certain industry associations. We take pride in the leadership roles we hold globally in important industry education and advocacy groups. Presently, we are privileged to hold leadership roles in the U.S. glass industry association, Glass Packaging Institute (GPI), and the European Container Glass Federation (FEVE), as well as organizations that seek to advance environmental and recycling policies, advocate industry standards and educate on the benefits of glass. O-I's President, Business Operations and O-I Europe chairs the supervisory board as President for FEVE while also serving on the organization's board of directors. Our Chief Sales and Marketing Officer is Chairman of the FEVE Market Place Committee. The Managing Director of our Americas North business unit is the chair of the Board of Trustees for GPI, and our Chief Sustainability Officer is on the board of the Container Recycling Institute.
