For the eighth consecutive year, Saint-Gobain has been named as one of the 100 most innovative companies and institutions, according to the Clarivate Analytics Top 100 Global Innovators ranking for 2018. The recently published 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 Chief Executive Officer of the Saint-Gobain group commented on its behalf saying that this acknowledgement of the quantity, quality and impact of its patents is recognition of the priority Saint-Gobain places on innovation and R&D. It rewards the expertise and commitment shown by its teams around the world. It also illustrates the company’s determination to constantly bring new and differentiated solutions to customers.
