With the advent of 2020, we are looking at 50-50 when it comes to gender equality and it is high time too. The International Women's Day theme for 2019 is #BalanceForBetter and we at Saint-Gobain completely subscribe to the view that discovering the right balance is the key to achieving harmony. We believe that building gender balance builds the world, because better the balance, better the world. This Women's Day, Saint-Gobain celebrates those who build balance in people's lives, while juggling multiple aspects of their own. This holds especially true of the new millennials who view balance as the key ingredient in making the world a better place.
Yes, we have come a long way indeed, when one gender was considered superior over the other. Today, we have no role reversals to talk about, because the distinction between what was stereotyped as a man's role and a woman's role is diminishing. This status quo of balance has taken years to accomplish, and hopefully will not tilt in any one's favour, in the years to come.
The changing paradigm and the shift to create balance has inspired us to come up with a product that personifies harmony in every sense of the word. Our Infinity range of exterior glazing solutions is constantly innovated to bring wellbeing in living spaces. We wanted to give our customers a product that ensured they did not have to choose between bringing in daylight and keeping out heat - with SGG Harmony. A glass that perfectly balances aesthetics and energy-efficiency, design and functionality, thermal comfort and visual comfort, as well as internal reflection and external reflection.
Just like the scores of women and men out there who multi-task, SGG Harmony is flexible and can be used across a variety of applications - like Façades, Structural glazing, Windows and Skylights. It comes in three variants – Clear, Green and Blue. Ensuring wellbeing through better occupant comfort, SGG Harmony is truly designed to bring harmony in spaces.
This Women's Day, let us celebrate the yin and yang that help balance our lives for the better. Let us make sure that we complement, and not compete, because it is the only way we can make each other complete. Together, let us bring the balance back for the world to say – 'And they lived in harmony ever after...'
