While most businesses struggle with the challenges presented by a resource constrained world, Saint-Gobain has focused its innovation engine on solutions to those challenges. As the world’s largest building materials company Saint-Gobain is in a unique position to not only help address the challenges we all face, but to grow its business in the process. Some of those challenges include:

• Population growth

• Climate change

• Social equity sharing

• Energy

• Resource scarcity

At the core of the company’s strategy is a partnership between manufacturers, builders, contractors, property owners and the environment. Through the responsible operation of its own facilities, to taking increasing responsibility for company externalities, and development of new and existing products that reduce or improve environmental impact, Saint-Gobain aspires to be the worldwide leader in sustainable habitat. This presentation will discuss these issues and opportunities, and specifically how Saint-Gobain is addressing them through its supply chain, operations, and innovative products.
