ROCKWOOL Sets Ambitious Decarbonization Targets

ROCKWOOL, a global manufacturer of stone wool products, has implemented ambitious, science-based global decarbonization targets that have been verified and approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). Key elements of ROCKWOOL's decarbonization plans include cutting factory absolute greenhouse gas emissions by 38 per cent by 2034 (relative to baseline year 2019) and reducing non-factory, absolute lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions by 20 per cent by 2034 (relative to baseline year 2019). The company says the emission reduction targets supplement its existing sustainability goals and equate to a one-third reduction of its lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions by 2034, while at the same time ensuring continued reduction in the carbon intensity (carbon emitted per tonne produced) of its production.
