A recognized leader

At Saint-Gobain, we have made our commitment to sustainability and to sustainable buildings visible and we are proud to be a recognized leader in our sector.

A visible and recognised commitment

Saint-Gobain has joined in 2016 the Dow Jones “World” and “Europe” Sustainability Indexes, ranking among the top-three global companies and the number one European company for construction products.

We are a signatory of the UN Global Compact since 2003 and we disclose our impacts on climate change, water, forests, through the CDP programs.

In the Nordics, we have signed the Nordic Build charter in 2014, aimed at accelerating the development of sustainable building concepts in the Nordics.


A personal leadership

Our CEO, Pierre-André de Chalendar, has taken a strong leadership as well as a personal commitment in the fight against climate change.

He has been strongly involved during the COP21 summit and has made his vision public by publishing book entitled Our fight for the Climate.

In 2016, he has been awarded the “David Gottfried Global Green Building Award” by the World Green Building Council. This award recognizes his personal championing of the global green building movement and in particular his innovative and unique approach to a business-led green building strategy.
