“We take an abundant natural resource together with upcycled waste materials and transform them into long-lasting, recyclable products that help meet global sustainability challenges”.
This is ROCKWOOL. And BEYOND 2020 Organising Committee is proud to announce them onboard as Silver Sponsor for the next World Sustainable Built Environment conference.
With 10 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals fully integrated in their business as a strategic framework and a high-level commitment to positively impact people and society, the ROCKWOOL Group has the ambition to empower people to rise to the development challenges of modern living.
Among the chosen SDGs for the conference, SDG 12 focuses on responsible consumption and production of materials worldwide. “As we observe progress in decarbonising our energy systems which help to reduce the environmental impacts of the operational phase of buildings, the role of building materials is getting more and more attention.” says Holger Wallbaum, Professor in Sustainable building at Chalmers University of Technology and Chair of BEYOND 2020. “Concepts like circularity, resource-efficiency and reusability have become more important for many businesses in the built environment. Therefore, we are very happy to have ROCKWOOL with us at the conference, sparring this dialogue further with other global stakeholders”.
The fact that stone wool can be infinitely recycled is an integral part of ROCKWOOL’s circular business model creating value from waste materials.
”Today more than ever, the world needs businesses that can provide sustainable solutions to the challenges of modern living. To tackle global challenges such as climate change, urbanisation, and resource scarcity, knowledge and collaboration are key ingredients to deliver on all SDGs. This is why we are engaging actively in Beyond 2020 to share our own experiences, get key insights from leading actors within the built environment and developing collaborative relationships”, says Anthony Abbotts Director Group Sustainability, ROCKWOOL Group.
We can’t wait to continue this discussion about the importance of material responsible production and circularity in the building industry.
Thank you, ROCKWOOL Group, for being part of this journey.
See you in Gothenburg in June 2020.
