Global

The Copenhagen-based ROCKWOOL Foundation, founded in 1981, supports scientific, humanitarian and social goals around the world.

The Foundation’s research unit is one of Denmark’s most respected social and economic think tanks. For example, its study of the Danish health system has been used by governments on both sides of the political spectrum to improve patient care. In addition, the Foundation is a grant giving body and in 2015 it made awards of over £4.8m with a special emphasis on routes in to education, training and employment for disconnected young people.

The Foundation, which is not-for-profit and funded through its control of around a quarter of ROCKWOOL International’s shares, has also supported a range of overseas projects including food security work in Tanzania, peace projects in Lebanon and help for AIDS orphans in Zambia.

Local

We work closely with our local community to keep schools, councils and residents informed about our work and to support the area through local job creation and community activities.

For example, at our Bridgend site we have established the ROCKWOOL Woodland for Learning Trust, which welcomes local schools to our onsite nature reserve for educational activities. In addition, we are proud supporters of our local business community. We are the headline sponsors of the annual Bridgend Business Awards, which celebrate the best local businesses as well as aspiring young entrepreneurs. Our donations programme also enables us to contribute to local causes, whilst our staff team is active in organising charitable fundraising activities.
