Discover our view on some of the major challenges we are facing today.
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 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.
We’re all familiar with the idea of recycling. With ‘upcycling’, waste is transformed into more valuable products, thereby reducing the need for virgin materials.
The solution to saving energy is here, today. Insulation is an easy, cost-effective way to make buildings sustainable.
Buildings have a huge untapped potential to become a central part of the solution to our urgent sustainability challenges.
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.
Hydroponic greenhouse cultivation delivers higher yields from lower inputs.

When water scarcity is a growing problem, horticulture may have the answer. By using stone wool growing media together with advanced irrigation technology, growers in the Netherlands are halving the volume of water needed.
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. The school addresses a need for modern educational facilities while creating a new public space by the waterfront.
