Saint-Gobain has unveiled a carbon calculator, which was developed by CertainTeed Building Scientist Lucas Hamilton and Sustainable Solutions Corp. of Royersford, Pa. It tracks the carbon offsets of the company’s energy-saving and -generating products that are installed in North American homes and buildings. Based on data from the U.S Environmental Protection Agency, the carbon reductions of installed Saint-Gobain products on an annual basis are equivalent to the carbon-dioxide emissions produced by more than 300,000 passenger vehicles or the amount of electricity needed to power more than 189,000 homes.
“Saint-Gobain is making significant contributions to the built environment in North America as demonstrated by our newly established carbon calculator,” says John Crowe, president and CEO of Saint-Gobain and CertainTeed. “The calculator provides valuable data on how our products ultimately protect and preserve the environment, offsetting over 3 billion pounds of CO2 each year.”
