We operate three worldwide business lines: Building Products, supplying original equipment and refurbishment glass for the world’s buildings; Automotive, producing glass and glazing systems for the original equipment and replacement glazing markets and Specialty Glass, operating principally in the information technology and glass fiber sectors.
At the heart of our manufacturing is float glass process. Basic float, or rolled glass is then processed further to produce a range of products. Coated glass is used in buildings and vehicles to control heat and light transmission. Demand for specialist coated glass is growing with the development of the solar power generation industry.

The NSG Group Code of Conduct sets out the guidelines shared by the Group and its employees for behaving in a professional, fair, ethical, legal and sustainable manner in relationships with fellow employees, customers, suppliers, business partners, the community and other stakeholders in the business.

The health and safety of employees, visitors and people living or working adjacent to Group operations and the protection of the environment remain our top priorities.

A priority for the Group is to facilitate proper disclosure and effective dialogue with our stakeholders on our activities aimed at creating sustainable business operations and those which contribute toward the creation of a sustainable society. This Report is an important part of that communication process.
