We believe that by decarbonising our business and value chain, we can reinforce the fact that we’re a net carbon negative company. That’s why we signed up to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) in 2020. This involved committing to a verified and approved plan for an ambitious one-third reduction of our lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions by 2034, using 2019 as the baseline.

Healthy living environments

As the global population continues to grow, our cities will need to accommodate more people in a safe and healthy way. The buildings that we spend time in affect our health, wellbeing and productivity – and considering we spend nearly 90 percent of our time indoors, a healthy indoor environment is very important. Stone wool products can meet some of the challenges that come with city living. From noise pollution to fire safety, ROCKWOOL products can help create the optimal indoor environment while enhancing fire resilience.

Feeding the world

By 2050, the earth’s population is predicted to be 9 billion – and 80 percent of all food will be consumed in cities. This growing urban population will need access to healthy and nutritious food. In places where agricultural land is scarce, new and innovative forms of food production hold the key to feeding city dwelling populations. Our Grodan hydroponic products enable food production in urban settings using fewer natural resources.

Healthy living environments

Although city living can be great and full of opportunities, it can be challenging when it comes to health and safety, and issues such as noise, air pollution and the threat of fire. Products from ROCKWOOL Group can create the optimal indoor environment while enhancing fire resilience.



The conversation around healthier buildings often focuses on light and air quality. But noise levels also significantly impact health and wellbeing.
