Discover our view on some of the major challenges we are facing today.
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.
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.
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.
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.
With good design and materials, rapid urbanisation can be sustainable.
Buildings have a huge untapped potential to become a central part of the solution to our urgent sustainability challenges.
The solution to saving energy is here, today. Insulation is an easy, cost-effective way to make buildings sustainable.
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.
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.
South Harbour School in Copenhagen, Denmark, is a new public school designed and built with focus on energy optimisation and harmonising the connection between the school and its surroundings.
