Given that international certification schemes such as ISO 14001 (Environmental Management Systems) are recognized by BREEAM, Responsible Sourcing Certification Schemes (RSCS) is an ideal partner in meeting this criterion.
In line with our commitment to green building, all Saint-Gobain’s floats and quarries are certified ISO 14001 and many of our glass raw materials (sand extraction and soda ash production) are certified ISO 14001 too. Saint-Gobain’s responsible sourcing policy encourages the specification and procurement of responsibly sourced construction products.
