At Saint-Gobain, our purpose is Making the World a Better Home. And, with this commitment, we are working hard to be a leader in light, sustainable construction worldwide. But doing this work alone is not enough. We are also taking tangible steps to reduce our carbon footprint and to serve as good corporate citizens.
In 2019, Saint-Gobain joined businesses around the world in signing the United Nations Global Compact “Business Ambition for 1.5°C” pledge. By signing the pledge, we are aligning our company with the goal of limiting global temperature rise to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels and committing ourselves to net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
As a result, Saint-Gobain updated our CO2 roadmap and established new reduction targets for 2030, including reducing direct and indirect CO2 emissions by 33 percent compared with 2017.
