Modern Slavery Act
Saint-Gobain works closely with its supply-chain to ensure that products produced and supplied to the Group not only meet legislative requirements but also consider important factors like, sustainability of raw materials, lowering the embodied carbon of the products, and ensuring that social conditions for workers meet internationally recognised standards such as the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact - which Saint-Gobain signed up to in 2003.

Gender pay gap reporting
Saint-Gobain is committed to achieving gender equality across all its companies. We have been actively working on becoming a more diverse and inclusive organisation for some years. The sector in which we operate has traditionally seen under-representation of women, particularly in senior roles. The Chairman and CEO of Saint-Gobain, Pierre-Andre de Chalendar, in March 2017, stated our ambition and determination to achieve greater gender diversity setting a target of 25% women in management positions across the whole of Saint-Gobain worldwide by 2020.
