The Foundation is the largest single shareholder of ROCKWOOL International A/S with 23% of the shares.

The ROCKWOOL Foundation is a charitable organisation established in 1981 by six members of the Kähler family who each contributed 25% of their own shares.The Foundation has two primary objectives: to deliver information about society through reliable independent research and to develop interventions that address the challenges in society.

The research is conducted both by the ROCKWOOL Foundation’s Research Unit and specialised external researchers. The practical interventions are managed by the ROCKWOOL Foundation’s Interventions Unit.

Addressing the sustainability of the welfare society, has been at the core of the Foundation’s work since its establishment. Currently work is focused on five areas: immigration and integration; tax and undeclared work; time use and working hours; marginalised groups and risk behaviour and a special area of emphasis: disconnected youths.
