The engagement of the Saint-Gobain Group for nature is established in our corporate principles. It is based on two pillars: on the one hand, we pay attention to the environmental compatibility of our products and on the other, our processes are checked for their environmental compatibility, regularly further developed and optimized.
"Saint-Gobain's strategic positioning in the habitat and construction markets means we must be irreproachable when it comes to environmental issues and sustainable development."
(Pierre-André de Chalendar, Chairman and CEO)
