About EGGER> Environment & Sustainability

Our environmental cycle – sustainability is more than a word for us.

The EGGER Eco Cycle

We stand for the responsible use of the raw material wood. Like in nature, we also organise our processes in cycles that conserve resources. Our focus is on our closed material cycle.

Sustainable forestry

Sustainable forestry
We act responsibly with regard to forests and the environment and are certified according to PEFC and FSC®, depending on the availability of the wood. In accordance with the EU Timber Regulation, EUTR, we only buy timber in the region from monitored suppliers.
