More From Wood has been EGGER’s principle since it was founded in 1961. We manufacture products for commercial and residential projects in the furniture, interior design, building and flooring industries, using nature’s renewable resources.
Our ethos is that wood is a precious material, and as our founder, Fritz Egger Senior, said, “Wood is far too valuable to just throw it away!”
By acting sustainably, conserving resources and protecting the climate, we contribute towards sustainable development and stand by our underlying principle: More From Wood.
Make informed decisions in your furniture manufacturing or design specification projects. Our products have useful environmental performance indicators that make us, and therefore you, More Transparent
All of our products leave a trace on the environment. Whether that be positive or negative, this indicator shows their carbon footprint. Our Melamine Faced Chipboard (MFC) has a Co2/m2 of -13.3kg, as the wood absorbs more CO2 during its growth than is emitted during the production process.
All resources have a different regeneration time: wood grows back in a few decades, but fossil materials need millions of years. This indicator shows how much renewable wood or fossil material is used in our products. Our Melamine Faced Chipboard (MFC) consists of 85% renewable resources (wood and paper) and 15% fossil resources (glue, wax and resin).
To conserve natural resources we need to make the best possible use of existing wood. This indicator shows how much recycled material is used in our products. Our Melamine Faced Chipboard (MFC) consists of 40% recycled material and 40% by-products from the sawmill industry.
We publish all of the ingredients used in our products. EPDs (Environmental Product Declarations) outline the environmental performance assessment of our products, and EHDs (Environmental and Health Datasheets) classify ingredients according to their contribution to the recycling economy.
