Sustainability in ROCKWOOL
At a United Nations conference in 1987 sustainable development was defined as development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
Later, at the 2005 World Summit it was noted that this requires the reconciliation of the social, environmental and economic dimensions of such developments - the 3”Pillars” of sustainability. Inspired by this, we have in the ROCKWOOL Group made the following definition of Sustainability:
People’s health, safety and quality of life are essential in what we do. With care for our employees and neighbors we are committed to making products that provide durable, safe, reliable and beneficial solutions for our customers and other stakeholders. The solutions we create allow our customers to improve the performance of buildings and installations in terms of comfort, energy savings, fire safety, acoustical properties, visual appeal, resource use or structural robustness.
The dividends of our largest shareholder, the ROCKWOOL Foundation, are financing research and social projects to benefit society.
