Timberpak, as part of the EGGER Group, pursues a far reaching environmental policy.
Managing waste in a sustainable way, optimising recycling and re-use, as well as limiting production, forms part of the Government policy to protect the environment.
*Established from the greenhouse potential of the EGGER EPDs (GWP 100 in kg CO2 equivalent, cradle-to-grave) on the basis of the production figures 2013/2014)
**An average European household with four people generates approximately 5.7 tonnes of CO2 per year, source: according to EUROSTAT 22/2011.
Sending timber waste to landfill should be the last option.
Not only is it increasingly expensive but re-use and recycling are much more sustainable methods.
Whereas burning wood releases CO2, chipboard production locks carbon away for the lifetime of the product and adds value to the wood.
