Committing to Society

About us



Committing to society

  • The ISO 14001 standard allows the establishment of an environmental management system within an organization, regardless of its size and its field of activity. This certification integrates environmental issues into the company’s sustainable development strategy.

  • The ISO 14001 is a structured framework that makes it possible to:

    • Minimize impacts on the environment 

    • Prevent incidents

    • Lay down plans for improvement

  • With this standard, the company is committed to sustainable development by creating products that respect the environment. It is also a guarantee that projects will be monitored and measured

  • In connection with this standard and at in-house level, Saint-Gobain PAM UK meets the OHSAS 180001 standard, which is also called the Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OH&SMS): this is a system for the prevention of occupational hazards.


Caring for the Environment We Operate Within


  • Over the years, we have reduced the footprint of our operational activities and this has allowed us to convert areas of our site into havens for wildlife, helping to increase bio-diversity of the local ecosystems 

  • At our Ilkeston site, we have committed to redeveloping our former spoil heap at Stanton Grove into what is now a green, bio-diverse environment enjoyed by local residents and wildlife alike.

  • Our Telford sie has worked closely with the Shropshire Wildlife Trust to re-wild its old landfill site and provide a sanctuary for wildlife 

  • At our Holwell site, in conjunction with the Leicestershire Planning Department, we have developed a long-term plan to restore the landfill site back to natural habitat. Significant areas of the site perimeter have been replanted with trees, and hedgerows have been installed within the landfill site to blend in with the surrounding local environment
