CORPORATE PHILANTHROPY, ENVIRONMENTAL APPROACH & EMPLOYEES
Corporate philanthropy is at the heart of the actions of Saint-Gobain employees. The ultimate goal is to make life more comfortable for everyone. This is a cause that is dear to Saint-Gobain... and to us, the employees who can freely commit to these programs!
Some examples :
The program of skills sponsorship against fuel poverty!
The principle: employees put their skills at the service of associations working in this field.
For example, two of our employees have carried out a mission with the association Stop Exclusion Énergétique. Sonia and Cécile work in the field of communication and marketing, and have contributed to the redesign of the association's website "le lab". This site is intended to promote actions and good practices implemented to fight against fuel poverty and supports projects such as the "Stop Exclusion Énergétique" Awards, which mobilize private and public actors on the subject.
Let's Go Carbon Zero
To engage all its employees on the road to carbon neutrality by 2050, and to contribute to the Group's 2030 CO2 emissions reduction target, Saint-Gobain has launched an internal Carbon Fund. First implemented in a pilot region, Northern Europe, it aims to accelerate the reduction of non industrial CO2 emissions through the everyday actions of employees and targeted investments on sites.
The areas covered by these investments are mainly related to sustainable employee mobility, renewable energies and improving well-being and energy efficiency at Saint-Gobain sites.
