Saint-Gobain Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility is at the heart of Saint-Gobain's strategy. It draws on a double pledge: minimizing the Group's footprint as with regards to women, men, and the environment, and maximizing its positive contribution as with regards to climate, social, and societal challenges. This business model directly contributes to ESG (Environment Social Governance) outcomes and links with Creating Shared value: “[…] beyond reducing negative impact and creating a positive one; Financial, societal and environmental benefits can be achieved simultaneously.”
