Vetrotech plant in Switzerland goes for green energy
Vetrotech Saint-Gobain is particularly committed to environmental and climate protection as well as the sustainable use of resources. Since the beginning of 2019, Vetrotech Saint-Gobain has been using electricity from 100% renewable energy at its Swiss production site in Romont.
In cooperation with the Swiss energy company Groupe E, the production site is drawing 100% of its electricity from sustainable hydropower. With an average annual electricity requirement of around 3.6 megawatts more than 600 tons of CO2 are saved each year, corresponding to a reduction of 97.6 %. The environmental impact of the Romont plant will be even more reduced thanks to the investment in a new machine which optimizes the cutting of glass, then reducing wastes by 20%.
Vetrotech Saint-Gobain is committed to the respect of people and the environment. This commitment is reflected in the "Glass Forever" initiative, in which all project participants are involved: Employees, customers, partners and suppliers.
