By joining British Glass, our members form a focal point for our industry. This allows us to effectively represent the sector’s interests and communicate its value to government and other stakeholders.

Our work is directed by constant dialogue with our members – and it’s their input of expertise, data and insight that underpins everything we do.

We have several committees and groups that meet regularly to discuss and prioritise work in key areas. These include:

  • Health and safety forward: open to all members; quarterly meetings usually include a visit or workshop
  • Environment and energy committee: quarterly meetings with a technical focus
  • Packaging communications group: quarterly meetings
  • Flat glass group: open to UK-based flat glass manufacturers.

See our work areas for an overview.
