Saint-Gobain is an active partner of the Construction Leadership Council [CLC] who's role it is to develop a strategy to lead the transformation of the construction industry.
The CLC's work is focussed on six workstreams:
- Innovation in buildings
- Supply Chain and Business Models
- Green Construction
- Exports and Trade
- Smart Technology
Saint-Gobain UK & Ireland's General Delegate, Mike Chaldecott, leads the work around Innovation in Buildings which is helping to increase demand for smart construction, supporting and creating centres of excellence and collaboration and improving the affordability of finance for homes built using smart construction.
Saint-Gobain invests hugely in R&D. It is a fundamental part of our business and has led us to be able to say that more than 1 in 5 products of our products sold today did not exist five years ago. Now, working with the CLC we are collaborating wide many other colleagues in the construction industry to help speed up a transformation of construction based on Innovation and smart construction. Harnessing this know-how is vital to speeding up our transformation yet further."
