Sogrape is a founding member of the Vidro+ Platform

The Vidro+ Platform, coordinated by Associação Smart Waste Portugal and to which Sogrape joined as a founding member, has the institutional support of FEVE - (European Container Glass Federation), and shapes the Portuguese Action Plan of the European initiative called "Close the Glass Loop ".

Plataforma Vidro+ is a collaborative initiative that intends to create a commitment among the different agents of the container glass value chain, who act in the national market, including also governmental entities, Universities and Research Centers, Associations and NGOs, to promote the increase of the glass recycling rate in Portugal. The Plataforma Vidro+ currently has 33 members.

By signing this Platform, Sogrape and the other entities involved commit to develop actions to achieve the following goal: "Collect 90% of glass packaging placed on the market for recycling by 2030".

The Vidro+ Platform thus aims to "Convert Portugal into a reference country in the collection and recycling of glass packaging, as well as in the incorporation of recycled glass in the production of new packaging", serving as inspiration in the movement towards a more circular economy.
