In the wake of the Grenfell Tower fire, everyone agreed that urgent action was needed to make sure that such a tragedy could never happen again. The role played by combustible materials in spreading the fire up the building has been well documented. In response, the Government ordered an investigation into high-rise residential buildings with the same ACM cladding type as Grenfell and found some 457 towers that were affected. Today, ROCKWOOL is publishing its analysis of buildings in England, showing that there are hundreds of high-rise and high-risk buildings with combustible materials which have not yet been identified.
ROCKWOOL has received accreditation from the Living Wage Foundation to mark its commitment to pay the Living Wage.
In a welcome boost for the local economy, ROCKWOOL has been granted permission by Bridgend County Borough Council to develop a new storage area at its Pencoed site in South Wales.
This week is the first Green Great Britain Week, a Government-led campaign to raise awareness and showcase what people, communities and businesses are doing to tackle climate change in Britain.

ROCKWOOL, the world’s largest producer of non-combustible stone wool insulation, has teamed up with the BRE and Loughborough University to open a dementia-friendly demonstration home that promotes independent living for dementia sufferers across the country.
ROCKWOOL welcomes Secretary of State James Brokenshire's confirmation that he plans to ban combustible materials from new high-rise residential buildings as well as hospitals, residential care premises and student accommodation above 18 metres.
