PAROC Natura Lana is our first carbon neutral stonewool insulation

Meet PAROC® NATURA LANA - Our first carbon neutral stone wool insulation

PAROC Natura Lana is our first carbon neutral insulation slab. It is made of non-combustible stone wool and has lambda 0,036 W/m˚C. PAROC Natura Lana is designed for use in a variety of applications in energy-efficient, green buildings especially in frame constructions and pitched roofs. Excellent durability, moisture, fire and sound properties are always part of Paroc´s insulation performance. The slab is easy and fast to install between studs since it keeps it´s form and stays in place without additional support. Natura Lana is the perfect choice when reducing the carbon footprint of your building.

Carbon Neutral – What does it mean?

PAROC NATURA LANA is manufactured in our Finnish factory using low carbon melting technology (EMF)* and green electricity which reduces CO2 emissions from melting with roughly 80% compared to traditional cupola technology. By maximizing the content of reused stone wool we are able to reduce the amount of virgin raw material and get a product with very low CO₂ emissions – 0,72 kg CO2-eq/m2 (A1-D). The remaining emissions are being compensated by reducing CO₂ emissions in other areas buying offsets in a Verified Emission Reductions Scheme to the same amount. We have chosen to support the Gold Standard Gyapa cookstove and the Delhi Metro projects. By doing so we can offer you our first carbon neutral product. The Carbon Neutral claim for PAROC® Natura Lana is validated by Scientific Certification Systems (SCS).

* Since 1986
  • The GWP value for Paroc Natura Lana is 0,72 kg CO2-eq/m2 (R=1) product for the full life cycle (A1-D)
  • The rest of the CO2 is being compensated by reducing carbon emissions in the Gold Standard Gyapa Cookstove and Delhi Metro projects.

CO₂ compensation – How does it work?

These are the general steps towards a net zero product

  1. Set a CO2 emission reduction target
  2. Create an inventory of emissions from the production of a product (LCA & EPD)
  3. Reduce emissions by increasing efficiency, switching to lower emissions fuels or purchasing electricity from renewable sources
  4. And for remaining emissions, which cannot be eliminated, invest in activities outside your organization that reduce emissions and claim that reduction via carbon offsets.


We support sustainable development in Gold Standard projects

The PAROC Natura Lana compensation is used to support the Gold Standard Gyapa cookstove and Delhi Metro projects. As well as helping in the fight against climate change, every Gold Standard-certified project supports sustainable development and climate security as well as additional impact to the health and well-being of local communities.

The Gold Standard Gyapa Cookstove project

Nearly 3 billion people in the developing world cook food and heat their homes with traditional cookstoves or open fires. The Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 estimates that 4 million premature deaths occur every year due to smoke exposure from these methods. In fact, this is the fifth worst risk factor for disease in developing countries and women and children are the most affected.

This partnership project between ClimateCare and Relief International, introduces the Gyapa, an insulated and efficient cookstove, to families in Ghana. The Gyapa stove cooks food more quickly, requires 50-60% less fuel and is less smoky. As such it not only cuts carbon emissions, but also improves health by reducing exposure to toxic fumes.

Compensating in Gyapa Cookstove project

The Delhi Metro project

The essence of this project is that the carbon footprint of people travelling by metro is much lesser than that of the same journeys performed by other modes of transport i.e. private vehicles. The non-metro modes of transport are not only less efficient in terms of fuel economy but also are more polluting.

The project involves implementation of energy efficiency measures in selected stations of the Delhi Metro in India. The project also contributes to sustainable development for the wellbeing of the country in terms of environment and socio-economic benefits.

In the project situation the metro complements other modes of transport and replaces partially trips made by conventional or traditional means of transit by metro. Metro, being a more efficient, faster, safer and more reliable transport means. Emission reductions are achieved through reducing GHG emissions per passenger-kilometer, comparing conventional modes of transport with metro.
