ADSW Summit: The Sustainable Future Home

From - Mon, 25/01/2021 - 09:24

Last week, Pierre-André de Chalendar, Chairman & CEO of Saint-Gobain, was a speaker at the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week - ADSW, to talk about the “ Future of Home”. As Saint-Gobain just introduced its new purpose: “Making the world a better home”, and regarding the on-going sanitary crisis which obliges many people around the world to stay…home, the topic is at the forefront of news!


Pierre-André de Chalendar, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, Saint-Gobain, Glen Finkel, Co-Founder, PURETi/Toledo, Solar/Aquom, Chris Hulatt, Founder, Octopus Group.

Moderator: Dr. Rachel Armstrong, Professor of Experimental Architecture, Newcastle University, United Kingdom, Visiting Professor, KU Leuven.

Brief: During the working week, a big part of the world's population usually spends all day away from home, being instead in their workplaces. During COVID-19, this is no longer the case, and some predict that returning full-time to the workplace is unlikely to ever happen. This means that the future home will need to be more versatile in its functionalities, as it will for many also be their place of work. It also means we will consume more energy, and possibly over time, we will have bigger homes. The promise of renewables and new technology to change the way we power our homes and embrace sustainable living therefore becomes even more important.

Getting to net-zero: Saint-Gobain’s operational roadmap to a sustainable future

From - Mon, 16/11/2020 - 16:23

"The value chains of which we are a part are interdependent, complex systems and any meaningful green transition needs all the actors in those chains to collaborate to reduce their impact on the planet." Emmanuel Normant, Vice-President for sustainable development at Saint-Gobain.

We need to make happy those we want to make better!

From - Fri, 16/10/2020 - 08:42

"Empowerment and trust generate positive and powerful implementation, with teams quickly rolling out a shared decision enriched by all. Organizations learn from their failures and foster risk-taking and experimentation, which are vital to success. In a sense, managers are like mountain guides, leading their co-workers to a hard-to-reach summit that no-one would have attained alone. The team works like a roped party in which each person supports and complements one another on the basis of mutual trust."

Benoit Bazin, COO - Saint-Gobain.
