Saint-Gobain, the world leader in light and sustainable construction, has affirmed its commitment to becoming carbon neutral by 2050, with the introduction of additional products and carbon-neutral manufacturing plants around the world.

Solutions for sustainability

In Africa, Saint-Gobain have eco-innovated their trusted and original, RhinoBoard® plasterboard, that is now manufactured using EcoTech™, which allows the board to not only be easier to handle, but also easier to install.

‘EcoTech™ is our enhanced engineering technology that provides an exceptional performance-to-weight ratio, achieving a higher caliber of performance and sustainability, while elevating the standard for plasterboard in the market,’ explains Anton Marais, Head of Product (Gyproc).

RhinoBoard® plasterboards, now with EcoTech™, are produced with a 10%* reduction in carbon emissions and an 8%* reduction in water use. The boards are also made from recyclable materials. Manufactured with an advanced performance to weight ratio, the boards are not only easier to handle, but also allow for the transportation of more square meters per load. The new technology has also allowed for efficient usability as the board is now easier to cut, snap and fix, as well as improved handling and installation onsite.

Saint-Gobain cares about building better for people and the planet, by offering solutions that deliver sustainability and performance to drive the transformation of construction markets. These initiatives are just the beginning of Saint-Gobain’s journey towards Net-Zero, with ongoing and deliberate efforts to ensure sustainability targets are achieved.
