Gilasi purchases carbon offsets for all its production energy consumption and employee commuting.  We also give you, our client, the possibility to take part by opting in for carbon offsets for your materials delivery.  This is just one more way to help keep supply lines as sustainable as possible. No pressure.  By choosing Gilasi, you already help to reduce the mining of mountains and you can up-cycle waste glass into a new production loop.
