Saint-Gobain

"The company Saint-Gobain has committed to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050. Net Zero Tracker
Their interim target is to reduce emissions by 33.0% relative to 2017 emissions by 2030. Net Zero Tracker
An interesting fact about their environmental policy is the introduction of their "Carbon Roadmap 2030", which includes intermediate objectives for 2030 approved by the Science-Based Target Initiative (SBTi). Net Zero Tracker
This roadmap covers not only their direct and indirect impact (scope 1 and 2), but also their value chain. Net Zero Tracker
However, their target does not cover historical emissions. Net Zero Tracker
In addition, …"

Sector Benchmark

Note: Latest GHG and revenue data (based on tradingview.com) are used to calculate GHG emissions intensity by sector. The color scale of each bubble depends on the GHG intensity (GHG emissions per 1 million USD revenue). Sectors follow the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) that organize companies based on their primary business activities. The 11 sectors are : Information Technology, Health Care, Financials, Consumer Discretionary, Communication Services, Industrials, Consumer Staples, Energy, Utilities, Real Estate, and Materials.

Saint-Gobain belongs to the sector Industrials.

Science-based Targets (SBTI)

Date Published / Updated :01/09/2022

Near-term Long-Term Net Zero Standard
Targets Set : 1.5°C by 2030 Targets Set : 1.5°C by 2050 Yes by 2050
Saint-Gobain is a member of the Business Ambition for 1.5 campaign (link here )

Overall Net-Zero Target Saint-Gobain commits to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across the value chain by 2050 from a 2017 base year*. *Under the former commitment model of the SBTi (available between June 2019 and October 2021), a subset of companies committed to setting near-term science-based targets aligned with well-below 2°C over an interim period as part of their wider net_x0002_zero commitment (referred to as Option 2 of the Business Ambition for 1.5°C Campaign). There is a strictly enforced timeline for these companies to ratchet ambition to 1.5°C for their near-term targets within a maximum of five years from the time of near-term target validation. At this point, they will be expected to decarbonize in line with their 1.5°C-aligned long-term science-based targets. Near-Term Targets Saint-Gobain commits to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions 33% by 2030 from a 2017 base year*. Saint-Gobain also commits to reduce absolute scope 3 GHG emissions 16% over the same timeframe from purchased goods and services, fuel and energy related activities, upstream transportation and distribution, business travel, downstream transportation and distribution, and end-of-life treatment of sold products. *The target boundary includes biogenic emissions and removals from bioenergy feedstocks. Long-Term Targets Saint-Gobain commits to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions 90% by 2050 from a 2017 base year*. Saint-Gobain also commits to reduce absolute scope 3 GHG emissions 90% over the same timeframe. *The target boundary includes biogenic emissions and removals from bioenergy feedstocks.

Additional notes: The alliance between the Optimera brand and Hunton, a manufacturer of wood-fiber-based products, has led to the creation of “Green Panels”. Installed in service or residential buildings, these panels or walls are made from wood fiber from Norwegian forests. They are a response to a growing demand for environmentally friendly insulation solutions and solutions capable of regulating hydrometry and improving acoustics. Together, the two players have invested in research and development to develop this solution, which offsets the CO2 emissions emitted during its production. (Pg. 48)
