At Saint-Gobain we understand the importance of giving our customers greater transparency, especially in the construction industry where sustainable procurement and practices are increasingly rigorous and play a key role in our daily business.
To promote material transparency along the supply chain.

GYPROC can contribute to this criterion for transparency in the supply chain, where Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) are performed on many of our products, and material inventories can be provided on demand. Please consult with your local GYPROC team for more specifics; our offices can provide emissions reports, health and safety certificates, fire performance information, product data sheets and other documentation that may be useful.
