Since its inception more than 50 years ago, our company has been continuously working to improve the acoustic environment in offices, schools, healthcare facilities, restaurants, theatres, factories and other premises.
Our promise of “a sound effect on people” is at the heart of our efforts to reduce our own environmental impact and to develop sustainable products, with the same passion and commitment we bring to every aspect of our business. We count on your co-operation, so that we can accomplish this goal together.
As a Saint-Gobain company, we adhere to set environmental policies and guidelines relating to our products, solutions and processes. Caring for the environment is an important part of the group's corporate values and extensive work is being carried out in this area which we and you as our customer benefit from.
Since climate change is now widely recognised as the major environmental problem facing the globe we have chosen, together with several other important efforts, to focus on the carbon footprint of our products. We will show you the areas in which we are performing well, the aspects which we want to improve, and also our environmental targets for the years ahead.
Here we present the latest results of our work in identifying, describing and reducing the environmental impact of our operations and products – ranging from raw and base materials and our production process to the recycling or disposal of discarded products.
