Saint-Gobain launches Corporate Social Responsibility review

Published:  12 September, 2016

Saint-Gobain UK & Ireland has launched its 2014/15 corporate social responsibility (CSR) review, hosted online in a new customisable format.

For the second review running, Saint-Gobain has worked closely with its advisory panel, comprising of representatives from customers, NGOs and sustainability experts, who have provided critical advice, guidance and feedback on the review, with a view to progress Saint-Gobain’s CSR strategy.

Mike Chaldecott, general delegate for Saint-Gobain UK & Ireland, said: “Good progress has been made in the 2014/15 CSR Review, although there are still many challenges facing the industry, and our business, that we must address in the coming years.

“Saint-Gobain celebrated its 350th anniversary last year, marking a long history of shared values and principles. Pursuing our CSR strategies and targets will enable us to prepare for sustained success in meeting the new challenges of our time, including those linked to climate change, circular economy in construction and the many issues linked to urbanisation.”

The CSR review can be found online at where readers can easily access articles, case studies and news on Saint-Gobain’s performance or download the review in full.
