Forests are water reservoirs, ensure biodiversity, serve for recreation and provide the natural resource wood. To ensure this, they must be managed as sustainably as possible. We are committed to promoting sustainable forestry and conserving natural resources.
We protect the climate and natural resources by purchasing wood as regionally as possible in the immediate vicinity of our plants and by using recycled wood and sawmill by-products.
More information about our sustainability management and our strategic goals for sustainable procurement can be found in our sustainability report.Learn more
We monitor compliance with their guidelines by means of so-called backwards integration. This means we are increasingly procuring wood through our own wood-buying and forestry companies, allowing us to trace the origins of the wood all the way back to the standing tree. If we need fresh wood for our production, we prefer to purchase regional wood from certified forests.
In this way we make sure that the management practices of a certified forestry operation meet the minimum requirements of national forestry laws and the requirements of the respective certification system.
As part of our EGGER due diligence system, we ensure compliance with legal and social standards in our supply chains. This due diligence system is certified according to recognized supply chain standards.
Compliance with the legally prescribed due diligence at EGGER is audited by recognized monitoring companies and confirmed accordingly.

We create transparency with our manufacturer's declaration on the sustainable procurement of wood (VRG270). The sustainability values listed in it have been verified by a third party via the new ISO 38200.
