OMV Petrom and Saint-Gobain Romania Sign Renewable Energy Supply Agreement

OMV Petrom and Saint-Gobain Romania signed 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.

“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,” Franck Neel, Member of the OMV Petrom Executive Board responsible for Gas & Power, stated.

“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,” Ovidiu Pascutiu, CEO of Saint-Gobain Romania, added.

With this investment, Saint-Gobain Romania will cover 100% of the energy needs at all its work points: Saint-Gobain Glass (Calarasi), Saint-Gobain Isover (Ploiesti), Saint-Gobain Rigips (Turda and Cheia), Saint-Gobain Weber (Turda, Branesti, Suceava), Duraziv (Popesti Leordeni), Saint-Gobain Prime Glass Working (Valenii de Munte) and Chryso Romania (Aricestii Rahtivani).
