Our CSR Approach
Saint-Gobain in Scotland is a leader in sustainable building solutions and high-performance construction materials. For the past 350 years, our products and systems have been used to enhance human habitats and daily life. CSR is integral to our long-term business success.
Our CSR approach is built on our Group values and Principles of Conduct and Action. It is influenced by global challenges as well as stakeholder engagement. We deliver sustainable solutions by focusing on four strategic commitments.
Increasing global population, urbanisation and mobility result in socio-economic and environmental challenges that affect us all, including:
- Demand for homes and infrastructure
- Scarcity of natural resources
- Increasing energy consumption and costs
- Greenhouse gas emissions and climate change
- Shortage of skills and home-grown talent
