A pledge which clearly defines our corporate social responsibilities and the ambitions we have around positively impacting our products, our people, our customers and the environment.
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, at Saint-Gobain Building Glass UK we place environmental concerns, the needs of the local community and our workforce firmly at the top of our agenda.
Our CSR brochure is a document which clearly defines our corporate social responsibilities and the ambitions we have around positively impacting our products, our customers and the environment.
Saint-Gobain Building Glass is a proud and active member of Business in the Community (BITC) an initiative that partners companies with local schools to provide advice to students on all aspects of entering employment.
Saint-Gobain Building Glass' innovative use of cullet in the glass manufacturing process has always been a key differentiator for the business. Saint-Gobain Building Glass currently operates the UK's largest cullet return scheme, and since the introduction of using cullet in the manufacture of float glass, SGBG has been able to increase the amount of recycled material utilised to 35% - rising to 41% in some cases.
