Terms of the action or commitment
2022 follow-up of the action
b) Numerical / Qualitative information
Recyclability rate of packaging purchased in 2021 = 69%.
The recyclability criterion was calculated on the basis of the financial amount of purchases for each type of packaging, considering pessimistically as “non-recyclable” any sub-category of packaging for which there are doubts about the recyclability criterion (multi-component bags, plastic buckets, thermoformed containers, big bags, etc.). The Saint-Gobain Group’s 2030 commitment to packaging focuses on the evolution of the type of packaging and the choice of materials used, in close collaboration with packaging suppliers and producers. These packaging sustainability criteria are now being integrated into the eco-design phase of new products or systems, and will also have an impact on the Saint-Gobain Group’s industrial processes and marketing strategy.
