SAINT-GOBAIN'S LEADING EFFORTS AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE ONCE AGAIN RECOGNIZED BY
This year, Saint-Gobain has once again been named as a member of the "Climate
Change A List" drawn up by CDP, a global non-profit organization that
identifies companies involved in the fight against climate change.
Saint-Gobain was recognized for its actions to reduce its greenhouse gas
emissions over the past year, mitigate climate risks and develop a low-carbon
economy. For instance, Saint-Gobain has installed turbines in India and Italy
to produce electricity from previously non-recovered energy. By the end of
2018, Saint-Gobain had reduced its CO2 emissions by 12% compared to 2010.
Pierre-André de Chalendar, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of
Saint-Gobain, said: "This recognition underlines the Group's involvement and
its commitment to transparency on the subject of climate change, as well as the
efforts already undertaken to reduce our CO2 emissions. It also commends the
ambitious commitment we made in 2019 year to achieve net zero carbon emissions
by 2050, in line with the +1.5°C warming scenarios. "
The environmental data collected by CDP from more than 8,400 companies and 900
cities and states around the world makes CDP's platform one of the richest
sources of information globally on how companies and governments are taking
action against climate change. The full list of companies that are part of this
