Building a climate resilient future

At ROCKWOOL, we transform volcanic rock into stone wool to make products that contribute to addressing many of society’s biggest climate change challenges, creating new opportunities to enrich modern living and build safer, healthier, and more climate resilient communities. Indeed, stone wool is a versatile natural material with multiple benefits such as being inherently circular and fire resilient that makes it ideal for applications in buildings, industry, transportation, horticulture, and water management.

We pursue a fact-based, auditable approach backed up by third-party references and methodologies to document progress in maximising our products’ positive impact (handprint) and minimising the impact of our operations (footprint).

In this report, you will learn how ROCKWOOL’s products can support communities to adapt and build resilience to climate change impacts and how we reduce the environmental impact in our production and value chain. In 2021, we reached two additional intermediate sustainability goals one year early. We improved our CO2 intensity intensity (CO2 /tonne stone wool) by 16 percent and offered the Rockcycle® reclaimed materials service to our customers in a total of 17 countries.
