Corporate Social Responsibility

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.

 

BIG CHALLENGES

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

 

OUR CSR STRATEGY

At Saint-Gobain Scotland, we find sustainable solutions to these big challenges through eco-innovation, resource management and support for the construction industry. In line with overall Group CSR policy, our strategy and programmes are based on four commitments:

1. INVENT SUSTAINABLE BUILDINGS

Saint-Gobain aims to become the reference for sustainable habitat, developing innovative solutions and showing exemplary leadership.

2. LIMIT OUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS

Saint-Gobain is committed to long-term commercial growth while achieving zero environmental accidents and reducing any negative impacts of our products or processes.

3. ENCOURAGE EMPLOYEES’ PROFESSIONAL GROWTH

Saint-Gobain’s people policy is based on four main priorities: employee engagement, team diversity, professional mobility and talent development.

4. SUPPORT LOCAL COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT & TAKE ACTION ACROSS THE ENTIRE VALUE CHAIN

Saint-Gobain is committed to being a major and long-term contributor to social and economic development, actively engaging with stakeholders across our value chain.
