SAINT-GOBAIN SIGNS A MAJOR RENEWABLE ELECTRICITY SUPPLY AGREEMENT IN POLAND

Saint-Gobain has signed a renewable electricity agreement (Power Purchase Agreement) with Tion Renewables AG (currently being renamed from Pacifico Renewables Yield AG), the German wind and solar power producer.

The 15-year agreement will run from 2025 and cover around 45% of Saint-Gobain Poland's electricity needs.

"This power supply agreement is an important milestone for Saint-Gobain in Poland. It will contribute to a significant reduction in our CO(2) emissions, in line with the Group's commitment to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050", explains Joanna Czynsz-Piechowiak, CEO of Saint-Gobain Poland.

It will enable a reduction in CO(2) emissions of 135,000 tons per year, i.e. nearly 20% of Saint-Gobain's scope 1 and 2 emissions in Poland and a 4% reduction in Saint-Gobain's scope 1 and 2 CO(2) emissions in Europe.

The PPA foresees the purchase of approximately 190 GWh of wind energy annually. This is equivalent to supplying about 100,000 European homes with renewable electricity each year. The total capacity of the wind farms is equivalent to circa 52 MW spread over three sites and 20 wind turbines.

This announcement illustrates how Saint-Gobain is stepping up the pace on its carbon neutrality roadmap and comes in the wake of the recent endorsement by the Science Based Targets initiative[1] of the Group's commitments to reduce CO(2) emissions by 2050.
