Saint-Gobain Included in Carbon Disclosure Project

The  Carbon Disclosure Project  (CDP) is an independent not-for-profit organization holding the largest database of primary corporate climate change information in the world. The Carbon Disclosure Project launched in 2000 to accelerate solutions to climate change by putting relevant information at the heart of business, policy and investment decisions. The CDP encourages the development of a common method for measuring greenhouse gas emissions and facilitates its integration in a more global analysis of financial investments.

Some 3,000 organizations in some 60 countries around the world now measure and disclose their greenhouse gas emissions and climate change strategies through CDP, in order that they can set reduction targets and make performance improvements. This data is made available for use by a wide audience including institutional investors, corporations, policymakers and their advisors, public sector organizations, government bodies, academics and the public.


For the first time ever, Saint-Gobain has been included in the Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) of the 51 top companies from the Global 500 (the world’s 500 largest companies) for the quality of the information provided regarding its CO2 emissions.


Saint-Gobain is ranked 5th in the “industrial” segment. The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), which includes 534 international institutional investors, awarded Saint-Gobain a score of 89/100 in 2010 (up from 67/100 in 2009). Saint-Gobain is listed on page 13 of the report.
