Sustainability and energy efficiency
At ROCKWOOL, we make products that improve energy efficiency. But we also want to ensure the materials we produce, and how we produce them, are sustainable too.
All our stone wool insulation is made from volcanic rock, one of the earth’s most abundant and sustainable resources. What’s more, our production processes are designed around ambitious goals that go beyond just neutralising our impact.
Our manufacturing techniques include circular economy practices, re-using waste produced during the making of our and other businesses’ products. We take stone, the most abundant natural resource on Earth, and upcycled secondary materials that would otherwise end up as waste and turn them into long lasting stone wool insulation products. These products are themselves recyclable and can be recycled again and again without any deterioration in quality.
Because of this, after just 200 days, ROCKWOOL insulation will have saved more carbon than was used in its manufacture.
For further information, Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) are available for all of the stone wool insulation products manufactured in the UK. To request an EPD for loft insulation, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
