Saint-Gobain Switzerland partnership with NEST underscores focus on innovation and sustainability

Saint-Gobain Switzerland with all its brands is now a NEST partner. NEST is a modular research and innovation building by Empa and Eawag.

At NEST, new technologies and building concepts are tested and developed under real-world conditions and validated in everyday practice.

Saint-Gobain has already been represented at NEST for several years in the field of intelligent shading with Sage Glass.
