Electrification of our factories

One of the most important ways we are decarbonising our business is through electrification of our melting processes.

“To succeed on global climate goals, industry needs to decarbonise as much as other economic sectors. In ROCKWOOL's case, electrifying our melting processes will have the greatest impact.” - Morten Skovby Thomson, Director Sustainable Melting at ROCKWOOL Group Technology

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

ROCKWOOL has long been a diverse workplace where employees with different backgrounds, nationalities and competencies work side by side. We recognise that each one of us brings to work our own unique capabilities, experiences, competences, and perspectives, regardless of our differences.

In 2023, we introduced a formal DEI policy and initiated a programme to make the workplace more inclusive and accessible for people with disabilities. At our summit in Taranto, Italy, we collaborated with lo Posso (“I can”), to raise awareness and stress the need to ensure events such as SailGP are accessible to everyone.

Closing the loop while expanding Rockcycle®

In 2023, we tested and began deploying more sustainable Rockcycle® collection bags. This means that we switched from using regular stone wool collection bags to larger ones (meaning fewer trips back and forth) made with 30% recycled content and expanded our Rockcycle® reclaimed materials service to three additional countries – India, China and Slovenia – reaching a total of 21 countries.
