Shaping the future with climate-friendly glass

In mid-May, the SANCO Group met for its 52nd Annual General Meeting. Around 105 representatives of Europe's largest alliance of insulating glass manufacturers met in the Polish seaside metropolis of Gdansk to discuss the latest developments in the industry. The partner companies stressed the strong cohesion and were optimistic despite the current tense market situation. They emphasised the importance of the SANCO product range for climate-friendly construction.

Partners benefit from low CO₂ values of float glass

At the start of the event, Dr Fabian Zwick, CEO of the Glas Trösch Group and representative of the licensor, thanked the partner companies for their trust. In light of the latest EU regulations, he also informed the audience about the Group's sustainability strategy and emphasised the importance of sustainability: "It is important to us to achieve low CO₂ values not only for individual basic glasses, but for the entire range." He referred to a current Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), according to which the group's standard float glass is almost 20 percent lower in CO₂ emissions than that from the Model Industry EPD of the Bundesverband Flachglas (German Flat Glass Association) (declaration number: M-EPD-FEG-001000). According to Zwick, all SANCO partner companies benefit from the particularly low values.

Strong alliance – strong team

As head of SANCO Consulting, Antonio Gioello also thanked the members for their loyalty and highlighted the Group's performance. Fittingly, he introduced the SANCO consulting team, which supports the interests of member companies in committees, provides technical advice and increases the visibility of the brand through marketing campaigns. Considering the venue location, Gioello also referred to the important role that the nine Polish companies play within the Group. A keynote presentation on the increasing importance of artificial intelligence (AI) rounded off the event's lecture program.
