Egger Group takes next steps on the way to Net Zero

The Egger Group is fully committed to achieving the Net Zero target by 2050, which involves implementing extensive measures and significant investments to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions across its entire value chain. As part of its dedication to climate protection, the wood-based material manufacturer has successfully taken several significant steps forward. For instance, Egger's operations at its Unterradlberg plant in Austria now operate without the use of natural gas following the installation of a new heat exchanger. Additionally, Egger is investing approximately EUR 80 million in a new power plant at its St. Johann in Tirol location, aiming to transition to renewable energy sources and reduce fossil fuel usage.

To achieve its Net Zero goals, Egger has set interim targets for 2030, including significant reductions in direct and indirect emissions from its own operations. The company is committed to continuous improvement and transparency in its sustainability efforts, regularly undergoing assessments by external ESG rating agencies. Egger has received positive ratings from these agencies, including Prime status in the ISS ESG Corporate Rating and the EcoVadis silver medal, which provide valuable insights for further enhancements.

The switch to CO2-neutral electricity for glue production at Egger's resin plants in Wismar, Radauti, and Hexham is another significant step in reducing emissions. Furthermore, Egger has transitioned to using binding agents produced with CO2-neutral electricity across all its board-producing plants in the EU and UK. These initiatives demonstrate Egger's ongoing commitment to reducing its carbon footprint and advancing towards Net Zero emissions.

Egger remains dedicated to its sustainability journey, consistently striving to achieve its environmental targets while maintaining its commitment to transparency and accountability.
