Cooperation and partnerships with our stakeholders is an integrated part of our business. Whether it be universities, municipalities, customers or other stakeholders we see cooperation as a way of exploring the potential of designing even better solutions.

The tradition of how we build and the physical environments in which we live differs from region to region, from country to country. Because of this innovation at local level is an important area for Saint-Gobain.

Where central innovation is the foundation for our succes in creating superiour solutions, the local adaptations and the local inventions is key to ensuring that all our solutions are "just right" in the area where they are produced and applied.

In the Nordic and Baltic region we have several R&D centers across the region.

Innovation is at the heart of Saint-Gobain’s strategy. More than 23% of our sales are generated through products which were developed less than five years ago.
