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.

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.
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.
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.
In a new report, developed in cooperation with Copenhagen Economics, we highlight the many reasons why the world should accelerate actions to improve our buildings, and present our recommendation for actions. Governments and cities have a key role to play as they have the power and strength to make changes happen.
