We believe developing people, processes and products in an inspiring space, with inspiring people, will lead to a global shift in our ability to sustainably manufacture more of our world from glass and glass-like products.

Individuals or organisations should choose to become members of Glass Futures because they share these values.

As a community, Glass Futures is generating a new form of collaboration across the entire supply chain for glass, in looking at the extended value chain, to identify the best ways to benefit members, the environment and people.

Our globally unique open-access R&D facility is at the heart of creating an inspiring approach to changing energy intensive industries and allows us to demonstrate complex and ground breaking developments in a safe, well controlled environment.

The commonalities that glass shares with other foundation industries such as ceramics, steel and cement mean that our membership is not only open to the glass sector but also to any member who may benefit from the research,  innovation and community building that we do.
