With ORAÉ®, Saint-Gobain Glass has achieved a landmark technical breakthrough enabling it to offer the first glass with the lowest embodied carbon on the façade market. This innovation will help to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of construction and accelerate the development of the circular economy.

Intended for use in the glazed parts of a facade, COOL-LITE® XTREME ORAÉ® is a perfect response to the stricter sustainability requirements of the building industry without any compromise on technical or aesthetic performance.

COOL-LITE® XTREME ORAÉ® provides the best of both embodied and operational carbon levels, thanks to:

  • The exceptionally low carbon footprint of ORAÉ®, produced by combining high recycled glass content (around 70% of cullet, of which 55% of external cullet) and renewable energy. As a result, the new product offers the lowest carbon footprint on the market with a reduction of around 40% compared to our regular product.
  • The excellent energy performances of the COOL-LITE® XTREME coatings, which already drastically reduce carbon emissions generated by energy consumption, when using the building thanks to its high performance in terms of daylight intake, solar control and thermal insulation.

The extremely selective solar control product family COOL-LITE® XTREME is now available on ORAÉ® substrate, the new low carbon glass of Saint-Gobain Glass.
