Saint-Gobain Romania and OMV Petrom sign agreement for the supply of green power

  • In the next five years, OMV Petrom will deliver around 800 GWh of renewable power to all Saint-Gobain locations in Romania

OMV Petrom, the largest integrated energy producer in Southeast Europe and Saint-Gobain Romania, part of Saint-Gobain Group, a world leader in the field of light and sustainable solutions for constructions, announce the signing of an agreement for the supply of electricity from renewable sources for all Saint-Gobain facilities in Romania. 

Based on this agreement, OMV Petrom will supply approximately 800 GWh of green energy to 14 Saint-Gobain locations in Romania over the next five years, thus contributing to the decarbonization objectives. Deliveries will begin in January 2026 with the power obtained from wind and photovoltaic sources. 

Franck Neel, Member of the OMV Petrom Executive Board responsible for Gas & Power: "Through our Strategy 2030, we are committed to supporting the energy transition in Romania and in the region, with investments of around 11 billion euros until the end of this decade, of which about a third will support low and zero-carbon projects. We have taken important steps in developing a portfolio of power projects from renewable sources, which will gradually enter production in the coming years. We are very pleased to announce this agreement with Saint-Gobain - it is more than a contract for the sale of energy, namely it is a partnership for a low-carbon future for the Romanian industry." 

Ovidiu Păscutiu, CEO of Saint-Gobain Romania: "The agreement marks another milestone in Saint-Gobain's journey to reduce its scope 1 and 2 emissions by 33% by 2030 - compared to 2017 and to reach " net zero emissions" by 2050. We are delighted to have trusted partners like OMV Petrom by our side to continue our journey towards a greener future. At Saint-Gobain, we are prioritizing environmentally friendly energy sources, in parallel with the permanent streamlining of production processes to reduce carbon emissions and energy consumption to make the world a more sustainable place to live in line with our goal – Making the World A Better Home.”
