Saint-Gobain’s commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is based on the Group’s Principles of Conduct and Action.
The four commitments of Saint-Gobain’s CSR policy:
Invent sustainable buildings
As the world leader in the habitat and construction markets, Saint-Gobain has a special responsibility to encourage sustainable construction in the face of such pressing issues as accelerated urbanization, worldwide population growth, declining natural resources and climate change. The Group takes part in discussions on energy efficiency in buildings and develops eco-innovative solutions with the goal of reducing products’ environmental impact in buildings by taking all lifecycle stages into account, both in new building and renovation projects.
Limit our environmental impacts
Saint-Gobain’s manufacturing and distribution operations have an impact on the environment. The Group takes action to reduce these impacts to the minimum, both in its plants and during product shipment. Raw materials, waste, energy, water and biodiversity are major challenges for Saint-Gobain. Common policies and tools allow all the sites to make progress in these areas and share their experience.
