Welcome to Vidrala Forest
A Glass manufacturer with a sustainable heart
Vidrala makes beautiful and sustainable glass containers in 8 sites across 4 countries in Europe.
Employing more than 3,500 people, Vidrala has a “Glass Made Good” philosophy, which means we place People, Place, Planet and Prosperity at the heart of our activities.
As a business we are tackling all aspects of sustainability, and initiatives have included planting thousands of trees around our plants, using sustainable power where we can and working with our local communities.
Importantly, Vidrala is also playing a leading role globally in setting a path to decarbonise the container glass industry with partnership work on the development of ultra-low carbon furnaces.
ForestNation is a wonderful opportunity for Vidrala to have a positive impact on both biodiversity and employment for local women in Tanzania. We hope to use this partnership to inspire our people and partners to get onboard and have an even greater impact.
Here’s a video update from Tanzania showing the impact made by Vidrala so far. These trees are helping recover land degraded by fires and illegal logging, helping bring back the forest – an important source of livelihood for nearby communities.
We know that we will have a great impact on the local villages and communities that the trees are planted around. That includes benefits to biodiversity in those areas, food for people and employment for women.
