Saint-Gobain celebrates innovation recognition

SAINT-Gobain has been named one of the world’s top 100 most innovative companies and institutions for the eighth year in a row.

Clarivate Analytics’ “Top 100 Global Innovators” ranking is based on four patent-related metrics: the total number of patents, the number of patents granted as a ratio of patents filed, the global scope of the portfolio of patents, and the impact of patents measured by the number of references.

Pierre-André de Chalendar, chairman and CEO of the Saint-Gobain group said, “This acknowledgement of the quantity, quality and impact of our patents is recognition of the priority Saint-Gobain places on innovation and R&D.

“It rewards the expertise and commitment shown by our teams around the world. It also illustrates our determination to constantly bring new and differentiated solutions to our customers; solutions that answer the societal issues of comfort and wellbeing, of responsible and sustained commitment, and of productivity and performance.”
