British Glass CEO Dave Dalton has today (6 September) given evidence to BEIS’ inquiry on how businesses and workers are reacting to the cost-of-living crisis.

Mr Dalton’s evidence focused on rising energy costs, their effects on energy intensive industries such as glass, what interventions from government could help alleviate the pressures on industry and security of supply over the winter months. 

Part of the evidence highlighted the increase in costs facing glass manufacturers in the UK who have seen wholesale energy costs increase by 700% in 12 months. 

On the inquiry, Mr Dalton said: 

“For both the glass industry and the wider energy intensive users, we welcome the inquiry into the impact of energy costs on our sectors as part of our ongoing dialogue with government.”

“However, we now need action as a result of this dialogue to understand what interventions will be put in place to deal with energy prices and security of supply this winter.”
