In the United States, Greentown Labs, the country’s largest incubator of clean technology, has officially opened the Global Centre for Cleantech Innovation, to host start-ups working on energy and environmental issues.
Established in 2014, the partnership between Saint-Gobain and Greentown Labs was an initiative of NOVA, Saint-Gobain’s External Ventures arm focused on creating partnerships with start-ups worldwide. This project was an opportunity to share the Group’s knowledge and products for the center’s construction using materials as technologically advanced and durable as the solutions invented there. SageGlass electrochromic glass and a range of CertainTeed ceiling and acoustic wall solutions including more than 3,000 sq. m of the Flintlastic® SA Self-Adhered Roof System, were installed ensuring the building’s comfort and sustainability.
