Progress within all three key environmental areas
From 2005 to 2010, the ROCKWOOL Group achieved overall progress within all three key environmental areas. 7 of 10 key environmental indicators improved.
7 of 10 environmental performance indicators where improved from 2005 (index 100) to 2010.
In addition, the indicator for workplace safety was improved.
Grey areas connote an improvement.
Green areas exceeding the grey index 100 limit indicate a set-back.
The three key areas for determining the ROCKWOOL Group’s environmental performance within our production:
- : energy and potable
- : , which relates to , nitrogen oxides (NOx), causing global warming, acid rain, smog and eutrophication, carbon monoxide (CO), causing smog ammonia (NH3), causing smog, acid rain, eutrophication and smell phenol (smog indicator) formaldehyde (smog factor and a hazardous substance), and dust
In addition, the indicator for workplace safety was improved. The frequency of accidents was reduced.
2005 is the index baseline. All indicators were calculated per tonne produced stone wool. Except for the Frequency of accidents – which was calculated per million working hours.
