Saint-Gobain meets its responsibility in the area of environmental protection by reducing logistics and transport and by using resources as sparingly as possible. Among other things, the company's energy consumption is to be reduced by 15% and CO2 emissions by 20% by 2025 in order to protect the environment, climate and nature. Saint-Gobain also promotes renewable energies and recycling.
But Saint-Gobain is also committed to the well-being of its own employees in a way that is rarely the case in other large international companies. The Group offers all employees a working environment in which they can develop their creativity and performance potential. In concrete terms, the offer includes further training, exemplary management, constant social dialogue, respectful interaction and a work-life balance. All this creates a positive working environment at Saint-Gobain and all its subsidiaries.
Through its OPEN programme (Our People in an Empowering Network), Saint-Gobain promotes professional mobility, diversity in teams and throughout the company, employee engagement and the development of each individual's talents.
However, Saint-Gobain's social commitment does not end with its own employees. Much more, the company makes a significant contribution to the economic and social development of the local environment at all its sites worldwide. This includes social, sustainable activities and projects that benefit everyone involved. Saint-Gobain employees played a central role in this by proposing projects and sponsoring social activities. Since 2008, the "Saint-Gobain Initiative Foundation" has brought together the worldwide social projects under one roof. The foundation has three core tasks:
- The support of young adults in vocational training
- The implementation of construction or renovation projects for people in need
- To develop and implement projects for energy efficiency and environmental protection in social housing.
Saint-Gobain's brand portfolio includes Rigips, ISOVER Insulation, Sekurit Autoglas, Saint-Gobain Glass and many other brands.www.saint-gobain.de
