ROCKWOOL becomes Regional Partner of WorldGBC’s Americas Regional Network

Friday 22nd December 2017

ROCKWOOL, the world’s largest producer of stone wool insulation has become a Regional Partner of the World Green Building Council’s Americas Network.

ROCKWOOL has led by example in Europe and America, demonstrating its commitment to driving a more decarbonised society and supporting the Paris Agreement to limit global temperature increases to less than 2 degrees Celsius. The company is already supporting the work of WorldGBC as a sponsor of the global project Advancing Net Zero, which aims to ensure all buildings around the world are net zero carbon by 2050.

ROCKWOOL has now become a Partner of the Americas Regional Network, which represents a community of 16 national Green Building Councils (GBCs) and nearly 15,000 member companies across North, Central, and South America. ROCKWOOL’s support of the Americas means improved collaboration between the GBCs and increased support for their development and growing impact.

In 2017, GBCs across the Americas have continued to transform the market and the regulatory environment, creating more sustainable buildings, best practices in sustainable construction, and creating the awareness needed to engage and involve communities. As a result, the Americas Regional Network has impacted more than 50,000 professionals and continues working on projects on building energy efficiency, sustainable and affordable green housing, and net zero carbon buildings.

Juanita Alvarez, Americas Regional Head at WorldGBC, said: “The leadership of ROCKWOOL has shown the industry how, with genuine commitment, it is possible to innovate and offer unique sustainable solutions to build a better future for generations to come.

“We’re pleased to welcome the company as the second Partner for the Americas Regional Network. Its experience and innovative thinking will support the strategic development of regional projects in the Americas, and together with the Green Building Councils it will help to increase the demand for green buildings and the positive impact they have on industry, people and the environment.” 

For 80 years ROCKWOOL has been working to offer more sustainable and environmentally responsible solutions, creating awareness on how insulation and energy efficiency can contribute to significant reductions in CO2 emissions. Since then, the company has shown a genuine commitment to sustainability and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Christian Kofod, Sustainability Manager at ROCKWOOL North America, said: “We strongly believe in the positive influence and the significant impact that Green Building Councils can have on the building industry around the world. We are delighted to join the Americas, and in this role, we look forward to supporting the growth of the green building market and highlight the importance of passive thermal resilience in the Net zero agenda.”
