Sustainability and specification

At the same time, glass manufacturers have sought continuous improvements in the way glass is made in order to reduce energy and water consumption, as well as increase recycled content. The majority of AGC’s products are currently assessed by the independent Cradle to Cradle initiative, which evaluates sustainability and rates performance accordingly.

As glass products become ever more sophisticated in response to energy, acoustic, safety, security and fire safety needs, manufacturers have trained glass experts and created software tools to help specifiers choose the optimum glazing for their projects.

AGC’s International Building Project experts work with project teams to develop the right glazing specification. This ranges from providing glass performance data to photo-realistic rendering of glazing, the aim being to ensure all technical and aesthetic requirements are met.
