EY in Denmark and the Danish Chamber of Commerce created the Special Award for Long Term Value Creation to celebrate companies that excel in sustainability and that have documented considerable impact. It is given to companies with clear ambitions for operating as responsible businesses that positively impact the sustainable transition and that have shown and reported progress to fulfilling those ambitions.

Through our special award Long Term Value Creation, we wish to draw attention to and celebrate those who have the solutions. We want to highlight companies with distinct sustainability ambitions that have a track record of significant, documented impact. EY and the Danish Chamber of Commerce consider ROCKWOOL to be such a company”, says Jan C. Olsen, CEO at EY in Denmark.

Regarding the award, ROCKWOOL CEO Jens Birgersson says, “Sustainability is firmly integrated into our overall business strategy. We pursue a fact-based, auditable approach to document progress in maximising our products’ positive impact while minimising the negative impact of our operations. Sustained long-term value creation is precisely what we seek to achieve, so we especially appreciate EY and the Danish Chamber of Commerce’s recognition of our efforts”. 

ROCKWOOL is also pleased to have been a finalist for the EY and Danish Chamber’s award for Sustainability Innovation.
