Sustainability

Our purpose is simple and compelling: to release the natural power of stone to enrich modern living. ROCKWOOL products save energy and water and reduce CO2 emissions, protect buildings from the spread of fire; reduce waste; improve acoustic comfort, building performance and aesthetics; and enhance Precision Growing, thereby improving the efficiency of fresh food production.

Sustainability and Circularity

In a circular economy, products should be used for as long as possible – and reused to the greatest extent possible when they reach the end of their service life.

Cities that save water

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.

How to build a sustainable future

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.

Urbanization and sustainable megacity

With good design and materials, rapid urbanisation can be sustainable.

ROCKWOOL participates in UN meeting on sustainable urban development

The ROCKWOOL Group takes part in high level UN-Habitat meeting on New Urban Agenda, 5-6 September 2017. The cities in which we will live in 2030 are being designed in 2017, if not already planned. With the New Urban Agenda agreed by UN Member States last autumn as part of Habitat III, the intention is to set a new global standard for sustainable urban development and help us rethink how we plan, manage and live in cities.

Urbanization

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.

Environmentally Friendly Solution

Buildings have a huge untapped potential to become a central part of the solution to our urgent sustainability challenges.
