Environmental advantages

Our most significant impact on the environment is through the application of our range of energy efficient products. The ROCKWOOL products provide a portfolio of sustainable solutions that have a positive impact on many of the global environmental issues facing our planet today, for example:

ROCKWOOL insulation is one of few products that can save more than 100 times the energy used for its manufacture. It conserves scarce energy resources and reduces air pollution and CO2 emissions by minimising the combustion of fuel, and thereby help alleviate environmental problems, such as the greenhouse effect, smog and acid rain.

With GRODAN horticultural substrates applied in the most state-of-the-art closed growing systems you can grow 1 kg of tomatoes using only 4 litres of water instead of up to 60 litres of water in soil with drip irrigation.


ROCKWOOL insulation is non-combustible - one of the most vital properties of ROCKWOOL stone wool is its ability to withstand temperatures of more than 1000°C without melting.

Great comfort and an excellent indoor climate

ROCKWOOL insulation gives us pleasant indoor environments by keeping out the freezing cold. In hot climates, stone wool helps to keep indoor temperatures comfortably cool. Our acoustic solutions improve schools, hospitals, offices and sport facilities in many countries.
