Saint Gobain – Our Commitment to Sustainability
Saint-Gobain offers solutions that contribute to customer business needs while protecting the environment and enhancing user well-being. We have an active "eco-innovation policy" with a goal of reducing the environmental impact of our processes – from product development to the end of the product life cycle. The results of these efforts help our customers meet regulatory compliance as well as internal initiatives toward sustainability.

Respect for Individuals
For the Laboratory, Biopharmaceutical and Medical markets, our most recent innovation is the Tygon S3™ line of non-DEHP and phthalate-free tubing. The current regulatory environment cites concerns over potential health effects of phthalates. To protect manufacturers and consumers alike, we removed DEHP and phthalates from a variety of our most widely used tubing formulations. The bio-based plasticizer in the new Tygon S3™ E-3603 and Tygon S3™ E-LFL formulations allows companies in the laboratory, biopharmaceutical and food and beverage industries to strengthen their commitment toward sustainability and provide additional reassurance to their customers regarding product safety.

Respect for the Environment
Saint-Gobain has set ambitious targets for reducing CO2 emissions at manufacturing locations to reduce environmental impact. We aim to reduce the energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions of our locations by a factor of four by 2040 under the Saint-Gobain Care:4™ program. The goal is to bring each new building''s thermal performance into line with the most stringent national standards and reduce annual energy usage to less than 80kWh/m2.
