Step 2: Improve our environmental impacts


The water consumed is mainly used during the production stage to cool down glass furnaces. All cooling circuits are closed loops, minimizing the volume of water rejected and pollution.

The policy pursued by Saint-Gobain Glass has enabled a 12% reduction in water withdrawn between 2007 and 2010, at constant production.

The objective is now to continue these improvement actions over the period 2011-2013, in order to reach a reduction of at least 6% of the quantities withdrawn at constant production.
