SUSTAINABILITY AT THE ROCKWOOL GROUP

Rising to the challenge

Our product portfolio is perfectly placed to tackle many of today’s biggest sustainability and development challenges. From energy consumption to noise pollution, water scarcity to flooding, our solutions help our customers address many of the big issues of modern living. Our range of products reflects the diversity of the world’s needs, supporting our stakeholders in reducing their own carbon footprint along the way.

We are dedicated to continuously improving the sustainability of our production processes, and our products’ positive impact on the world. To set this commitment in stone, and make it meaningful to our global employee and customer base, in 2016 we announced 6 ROCKWOOL Group sustainability goals across four themes where we feel we can have the most significant initial impact:

  • Climate change and energy efficiency
  • Circular economy
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Water management

We are both privileged and conscious of the fact that the ROCKWOOL Group can play such an important role in shaping a more sustainable society. The team is committed to further integrating sustainability into our business and into people's lives. Throughout their lifespan the ROCKWOOL Group’s products typically save on average 1,500 times the carbon emissions emitted during their production. These CO2 savings are achieved every time most ROCKWOOL stone wool insulation is installed.

The ROCKWOOL 2015 Sustainability Report highlights how we are rising to the challenges addressed by the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Our new approach to sustainability is founded on the framework “Rising to the challenge” and follows three basic principles:

  • Sustainability will be at the heart of the ROCKWOOL Group growth
  • ROCKWOOL Group products deliver against the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  • The ROCKWOOL Group has committed to six ambitious sustainability goals

The Report outlines ambitious internal goals which the organisation will meet by 2030, while bringing to life the many ways in which our products address pertinent global issues from energy efficiency to water usage.

The integration of sustainability in the ROCKWOOL Group’s business strategy has been carefully developed as part of the company’s transformation, and is designed to focus efforts where they can have the most salient impact.
