At Saint-Gobain

In everything we do, we are guided by our purpose: Making the world a better home

Our goal is to reduce our footprint and maximise our impact, both on our own operations and by helping our customers building more sustainably.

Care for the environment and the search for an increasingly responsible action are the pillars that guide us to respond to the greatest challenges faced by humanity: climate change, protection of natural resources, health care and well-being. being, and inclusion.

Net carbon zero

Faced with these challenges of climate change and the risks associated with the average increase in temperature, Saint-Gobain, which has committed itself to achieving zero net carbon emissions by 2050, aims to promote the emergence of a low-carbon economy in the countries where it operates. In concrete terms, the aim is to help our customers reduce their CO₂ emissions through the use of their products and solutions or by reducing the carbon impact of their production. We work to decarbonise construction and industry, minimizing our footprint and maximizing our contribution.

SGBC

SGBC's Certification scheme is a comprehensive listing of assessed and certified green building products that are safer, healthier, efficient and sustainable products in the building industry (SGBC, 2015).

The Council continually promotes green building design, practices and technologies, the integration of green building initiatives into mainstream design, construction and operation of buildings as well as building capability and professionalism to support wider adoption of green building development and practices in Singapore. We regularly organise industry seminars, such as the SGBC Green Trends Seminar, for professionals, manufacturers, distributors, estate and facilities managers, designers and developers to update on the latest trends and innovative solutions. By sharing industry knowledge and research data on sustainable buildings, we hope to help local industry players to make efficient and strategic decisions (SGBC, 2015).
