British Glass is today hosting a face-to-face meeting between the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and representatives from flat, container and fibre glass manufacturing.

BEIS asked British Glass to organise the meeting to discuss the glass industry’s interests and concerns related to the UK’s relationship with the EU after Brexit. Senior representatives from ten of the UK’s high volume glass manufacturers – covering flat, container and fibre glass – have been invited to the face-to-face meeting with BEIS officials.

High volume glass manufacturing contributes around £1.3 billion to the UK economy each year and provides more than 6,650 direct jobs, as well as an estimated 115,000 more jobs in its supply chain.

British Glass Senior Policy Advisor Debra Huntington said:

“Protecting and nurturing the UK’s glass capabilities is an economic and environmental imperative: our homes, vehicles, food supply, communication, entertainment and much more all rely on glass products. Ensuring our membership has ongoing and frank dialogue with policy makers is central to the purpose of British Glass – so we’re delighted to be hosting this meeting.”

Key issues to be discussed will include the nature of the UK’s future relationship with the EU carbon emissions trading scheme (EU ETS), costs of energy and how the REACH regulations will operate, trade remedies and movement of people.
