Saint-Gobain works closely with its supply-chain to ensure that products produced and supplied to the Group not only meet legislative requirements but also consider important factors like, sustainability of raw materials, lowering the embodied carbon of the products, and ensuring that social conditions for workers meet internationally recognised standards such as the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact - which Saint-Gobain signed up to in 2003.
Modern Slavery Act 2015
In October 2015, the UK Government introduced the 2015 Modern Slavery Act. The Act requires companies operating in the UK, with a Group turnover of more than £36million per year to publish a statement setting out the steps that they have taken during that financial year to ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place:
- anywhere in their supply chains;
- in any part of their own business.
