The main one is to be carbon neutral by 2050. We will achieve this goal in gradual steps, we want to reduce CO emissions by 20252 by 20%, non-recycled waste by 50% and the amount of waste water by 80%. Five years later, in 2030, we want to achieve even more ambitious goals, based on long-term sustainability plans that include changing the energy mix, manufacturing innovations, consistent recycling, replacement of primary sources and other concrete measures,” added Jakub Benda, Saint-Gobain’s press spokesman in the Czech Republic and at the same time a regular participant in one of the cleanings.
