Discover our view on some of the major challenges we are facing today.
With good design and materials, rapid urbanisation can be sustainable.
Cities are growing. With that comes challenges. Urban flooding and fire fatalities being some of them. Intense rainfall overwhelms the capacity of the drainage systems in cities.
From railways to tramways, roads to airports, good infrastructure is crucial to urban life, which can be very noisy. The resulting ground-borne vibration, traffic noise – and not to mention human noise pollution – all have a serious and negative impact on our wellbeing, especially in densely populated areas.
As a growing body of evidence reveals the damaging impacts of noise pollution, it’s important that we respond. Good acoustic designs that absorb sound help professionals and students to think and talk more easily, and at the same time create better environments for learning and healing.
In land-scarce urban areas, more and more people are working and making their homes in high-rise buildings. These structures can be brilliant solutions to the challenge of safely housing a growing population.
When environmental goals are more important than ever, improving energy efficiency in buildings presents an immediate opportunity to make our towns and cities healthier, safer and more sustainable.
Fresh water is our most precious resource. But extreme weather and fast-growing cities mean that unless we take measures to manage it more actively, it could also become scarcer.
ROCKWOOL Insulation delivers a number of benefits beyond thermal performance in external walls, such as best in class fire resistance, exceptional noise reduction, water repellence as well as vapour permeability, and dimensional stability - meaning excellent fit and real world performance, for the lifetime of the building.
Energy efficiency can reduce the environmental footprint of a growing population
ROCKWOOL Group has come a long way since its early days of production in Hedehusene, Denmark in 1937. The Group has expanded its product range well beyond building insulation, employs more than 10,800 employees, operates in 38 countries with 40 manufacturing facilities and sells its products in 100+ countries around the world.
