Corprate Bias Ratings

Risk Level:

Rating - Clear
Lower Risk

O-I Glass has not terminated business relationships due to religious or ideological views or beliefs. The company does not protect employees from viewpoint discrimination yet imposes unconscious bias training and DEI advocacy. However, O-I Glass does not discriminate against religious charities in its donations and does not use its corporate funds to advance ideological causes. By complying with Human Rights Campaign’s controversial demands, the company increases the risk of dividing employees, alienating customers and harming shareholders. O-I Glass forces employees to undergo multiple ideological trainings and provides specific sexual orientation and gender identity-based benefits. For these reasons, O-I Glass receives a Lower Risk rating.
