Saint-Gobain recently announced its continued financial support of the Energy Coordinating Agency (ECA), Philadelphia’s largest provider of key energy conservation services, including weatherization, energy workshops, heater repair, and replacement for low-income residents, and green jobs training.

In addition, the company presented a $10,000 grant on behalf of the Saint-Gobain Corp. Foundation at a Philadelphia City Council meeting recognizing the ECA’s Knight Green Jobs Training Center as a Center of Excellence. The grant will reportedly be used toward the continuing education and professional development of ECA staff members, as well toward the development of a scholarship fund to foster a partnership with youth enrolled in YouthBuild, a green building education and job-training program which Saint-Gobain currently supports through a national partnership. 

“Saint-Gobain congratulates the Energy Coordinating Agency’s Knight Green Jobs Training Center on being recognized as a Center of Excellence and is pleased to reaffirm our support of the organization’s mission of providing green education and job training to promote sustainability with the future workforce,” said John Crowe, president and CEO of Saint-Gobain and CertainTeed Corp. “Philadelphia is on its way to becoming one of the greenest cities in America because of ECA’s commitment to creating solutions to the energy problems faced by low-income families, and as citizens of this community, we're committed to helping achieve that goal.”
