Environmentally Friendly Solution

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


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.

Material improvement

When renovating old homes or planning a new development, the right combination of design and insulation can make a big difference to a building’s performance.

Saving energy forever

The solution to saving energy is here, today. Insulation is an easy, cost-effective way to make buildings sustainable.

Urbanization and sustainable megacity

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

More food from less water

Hydroponic greenhouse cultivation delivers higher yields from lower inputs.

Circular Economy - built to last

The linear “take, make, waste” economic model is reaching its limits. The environment simply does not have the capacity to sustain it any more.

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.


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.
