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.
