Our contribution

Construction waste reduction

Glass and glazing are made in factories and delivered ready to be installed; they do not produce any cutting waste on the jobsite. A few recyclable elements are used for protection purposes during delivery (cardboard, plastic or wood) and the racks on which the glass is transported are returned to the glass manufacturer processor. This is all in line with the sustainable building beliefs at Saint-Gobain Glass. 

Diversion of resources from landfill

Regarding demolition waste, Saint-Gobain is working to set up a new recovery channel to give its glazing a second life. 
Accordingly, new recycling projects have been launched in France and the UK. In these countries, the cullet coming from windows and glazing destined to be destroyed is collected and injected once again into the manufacturing process, after being processed and sorted by a recycling company.
