Getting the proportions right
Through our insulation products we have truly significant positive impact on the climate change:
- Our building insulation sold in 2022 will save 931 terawatt-hours of heating energy during its lifetime. This is equivalent to more than 100 times the carbon emitted in its production.
- Our building insulation saves more than 60 times the PM emissions related to the production of ROCKWOOL insulation during the 50 years average lifetime of a building.
- Our technical insulation sold in 2022 will save more than 4123 terawatt-hours heating energy during its lifetime and as a result save one billion tonnes of CO2.
We are committed going forward to maximizing the saved energy and carbon through the use of our products.
How is the saving calculated?
To assess the energy and carbon emission savings from the usage of sold ROCKWOOL insulation products, there is a need for a robust and transparent calculation methodology. Therefore, ROCKWOOL asked Navigant to develop a methodology to calculate the energy and CO2 emission savings of its building and technical insulation. Navigant developed the methodologies independently of ROCKWOOL and endorses that the annual savings calculated by ROCKWOOL correctly follow these methodologies.
The CO2 emissions emitted during production of ROCKWOOL products have been calculated by ROCKWOOL.
