Environmental awareness and the manufacturing industry would appear to occupy opposite ends

of the spectrum, yet, as one of the UK’s largest glass manufacturers, we at Saint-Gobain Glass

UK place environmental concerns, the needs of the local community and our workforce fi rmly

at the top of our agenda.


We have found that our insistence on an environmental commitment does not confl ict with our other ambitions of world-class product development, innovation and growth. quite the contrary: to us the

two are naturally compatible. Products manufactured using glass from Saint-Gobain Glass last for many

years and play an important part in keeping the energy consumption of buildings to a minimum. Over its lifetime, a Saint-Gobain Glass product will save over one hundred times more energy than was originally used in its manufacture.
