The SCORE tool by Saint-Gobain


At Saint-Gobain, we aim to
create great living places and improve daily life by combining
comfort and sustainability. This is why we are
committed to developing and delivering more and
more sustainable products. For us, a sustainable product is a product
with reduced environmental and health impacts and increased sustainability benefits
for customers all along its life cycle. These impacts and benefits are
classified in 5 categories: energy & climate, health, materials &
circularity, water and local value creation. Based on this definition,
we have designed SCORE: an innovative tool to assess the sustainability
performance of our construction products The scoring is based
on 21 indicators that reflect the key sustainability
challenges of the construction market. Some of these indicators are based
on life cycle assessments such as: -Carbon footprint or
water consumption The others are tailor-made qualitative
or quantitative indicators such as: -Energy savings, Recycled content
or Raw material toxicity After assessment, each
product obtains a scorecard. Thanks to the progressive
deployment of SCORE, the methodology is
gradually perfected. It will help: -Boost Eco-innovation making our product
portfolio more sustainable over time -Deliver more transparent
information to our costumers Designed with the help
of independent experts, SCORE is the first tool of its
kind in the construction sector! We are convinced that
this ground-breaking tool will help us produce more sustainable
solutions for our customers and bring sustainability
into our living spaces. SCORE… putting Sustainability
at the CORE of our business.
