Official Supporter PARIS 2024

Saint-Gobain is joining the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games as “Official Supporter for renovation and sustainable construction solutions”.

PARIS 2024
We are happy and proud to be supporting the world’s leading sporting event, as an “Official Supporter” of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games!

We became involved because we share values with the Olympic movement, such as excellence, respect and solidarity, and also performance, commitment and surpassing oneself.

The 2024 event also aims to set an example in terms of diversity, inclusion and responsible commitment, with ambitious targets to halve the event’s carbon footprint compared with previous Games.

A goal that is naturally in line with our corporate purpose and the Group’s ambition to be the worldwide leader in light and sustainable construction.

Together, we’re going to experience a unique, magical and extremely unifying moment for all the Group's employees.

What practical contribution is  Saint-Gobain Group making to construction sites for Paris 2024?

Saint-Gobain, through its expertise in sustainable and lightweight construction, is participating in the construction of major structures for the Olympic Games.
With the aim of reducing transport-related CO2 emissions, the Group used inland waterways to deliver materials such as glass wool, plasterboard and mortars used in the construction of the buildings in the Olympic Village. 

All these buildings have been designed so that they can be reused after the Games, another point in common with our Group and its commitment to the circular economy.
To give another example, the 200 stained-glass windows installed at the top of the Signal Tower in the heart of the village were made at our glass plant in Duttlenheim, Alsace.
