Saint-Gobain has been featured on a prestigious A-list that rewards efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
The list is compiled by non-profit group CDP which scores companies based on the carbon data they voluntarily disclose on its platform.
Published every year, the environmental reporting and rating process of the CDP is widely recognised as the benchmark for corporate environmental transparency.
Richard Batley, HR and CSR Director, Saint-Gobain, said:
It’s the second time Saint-Gobain has featured on the Climate Change A-list and it’s a huge achievement to be named one of the leading companies in terms of demonstrating significant action on climate change by CDP. It’s true recognition of the progress we’ve made so far. This type of real progress is what we need to achieve to live up to our purpose to Make the World a Better Home. We have to keep this going and accelerate the change where we can. We need everyone to understand our commitments and targets and each of us to be clear on how we can contribute to further positive change.
We have defined a 2030 roadmap targeting a reduction in CO2 emissions. The roadmap builds on medium term targets, which include a wide range of actions on carbon, water, waste, packaging and the circular economy.
Other leading companies on the CDP’s A List include Diageo, Lenovo Group, AstraZeneca and PepsiCo. The A-list features 200 companies globally (compared to 277 in 2020) out of nearly 12,000 companies evaluated.
