Sweden stands as a global leader in sustainability practices, particularly in waste management including glass. Its hospitality sector has embraced innovative approaches to collect and recycle, setting a remarkable precedent for the world. With a strong emphasis on environmental consciousness, Swedish hotels, restaurants, and other hospitality establishments have adopted cutting-edge strategies to optimize glass collection but with modest consumption of products in one-way glass packaging in hospitality sector, Sweden doesn’t belong to a group of priority countries.
In number of establishments and density relative to population, Sweden has a modest hospitality sector. When it comes to glass packaging, Sweden ranks 9th on the number of one-way glass beverage bottles placed on the market in HORECA but only 19th when it comes to the share of tonnage, indicating smaller bottle formats.
