Saint-Gobain is committed to Net-Zero Carbon Emissions by 2050
During the UN Climate Action Summit held on 23 September 2019, Saint-Gobain signed the pledge of the Global Compact “Business ambition for 1.5°C”, committing itself to reach net-zero emissions by no later than 2050, in line with the goal to limit the rise of global temperature to 1.5°C. This ambition is part of the strategy that the Group has been deploying for several years to limit its environmental impact and contribute to decarbonise its markets.
Pierre-André de Chalendar, Chairman and CEO of Saint-Gobain:
“Saint-Gobain designs, produces and distributes solutions that contribute themselves to the reduction of CO2 emissions, including thermal insulation solutions that promote energy efficiency. Within only three months, thanks to energy savings, our insulation solutions compensate the CO2 emissions linked to their production. The Group is already making a significant contribution to improving energy efficiency and reducing carbon emissions on its construction, mobility and industry markets. With this commitment, Saint-Gobain goes one step further to reduce its own impact. The 2050 vision is critical to drive our medium and long-term investment policy as well as industrial roadmaps, R&D programs, or product development strategy.”
