Saint-Gobain and AGC Glass Europe were named to Carbon Disclosure Project’s (CDP) “Climate Change A-List,” which recognizes companies worldwide for environmental transparency and performance on climate change, deforestation and water security.

CDP is a global environmental non-profit organization considered the gold standard of environmental reporting with the most comprehensive corporate and city action dataset.

Saint-Gobain and AGC Glass Europe were named to Carbon Disclosure Project’s (CDP) “Climate Change A-List.”

The two join 282 global companies out of more than 15,000 that answered the CDP 2022 climate change questionnaire. CDP’s scoring measures awareness and management of environmental risks and best practices associated with environmental leadership, such as setting ambitious and meaningful targets.

“This achievement is proof of the company’s consistent actions in terms of sustainability,” says Claire Pedini, senior vice president of human resources and corporate social responsibility at Saint-Gobain. “It demonstrates that the whole Group is mobilized to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050, in line with our purpose ‘Making the World a Better Home’.”

Saint-Gobain has set a 2030 roadmap targeting a reduction in CO2 emissions of 33% for scopes 1 and 2, and 16% for scope 3, compared with 2017 targets validated in 2020 by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). In September, the SBTi also validated Saint-Gobain’s net-zero carbon commitment by 2050.

In addition to the climate CDP, Saint-Gobain also received an “A-” for its transparency on water security. The Group aims to reduce water withdrawal by 50% before 2030 and achieve a zero-water discharge in areas suffering from extremely high-water stress.

The AGC Group has promoted sustainability management as one of its key strategies and aims for a net zero carbon footprint by 2050. As a milestone, in 2021, the AGC Group declared the interim targets of a 30% reduction in GHG emissions in Scope 1 and Scope 2 and a 50% reduction in GHG emissions per unit of sales in Scope 1 and Scope 2 by 2030.
