The Business Leadership Brief showcases the ability of driving positive impacts across multiple Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The ROCKWOOL Group has committed to 10 of the UN’s SDGs, which include; Climate Action, Responsible Consumption and Production and Good Health and Well-being.


“The SDGs steer our ambitions as a company and each year, we continue to increase the positive impacts of our products. We do so by not only focusing at our product use in new buildings but as importantly in renovating existing buildings as it is estimated that more than 50% of buildings today will still be in use by 2050.” says Jens Birgersson, President and CEO at ROCKWOOL Group.


Rockfon, as a brand of the ROCKWOOL Group, is highly focused on enhancing the acoustic indoor environment of offices, schools, hospitals, restaurants and any other indoor space. Human health depends on the environment that surrounds us every day. We are dependent on the air, the water, and the safety of our surroundings. A significant component of our health is linked to the indoor environment. Rockfon understands the importance of healthy spaces and strives to create products that generate safe and healthy indoor climates.
