Pfleiderer releases sustainability report for 2023

Pfleiderer, a leading manufacturer of high-quality wood-based products and laminates for kitchen, furniture, and construction applications, has released the sustainability report for 2023. In this report, the company provides a detailed overview of its ESG activities (ESG: Environmental, Social, and Governance) for the second time, which are an integral part of its corporate strategy.


The year 2023 was the most successful in terms of sustainability activities due to numerous awards. The company won another gold medal from EcoVadis and, according to the rating agency Morningstar/Sustainalytics, was ranked as the second-best company in the building materials industry category, placing it in the top two percent of 15,000 globally rated companies. The highlight was the awarding of the German Sustainability Award 2024 in the Basic Materials/Wood Processing category, which crowned an extraordinary year.

Dr. Frank Herrmann, CEO of the Pfleiderer Group, summarises, 'The performance of the Pfleiderer team in terms of sustainability and ESG cannot be overestimated, especially in a challenging business year. A great success, especially since we have far exceeded some of our self-set goals. I am particularly pleased that we have convinced various juries of the strategy and efforts of the company in the crucial area of sustainability resulting in the awards mentioned.'

Pfleiderer consistently focuses on recycling and the resource-saving cascade economy as core elements of its sustainability strategy. The company recycles wood until the last technically possible cycle, producing high-quality products from it. This extends the carbon storage capacity of the wood, preventing the premature release of climate-damaging CO2 through the combustion of still recyclable raw materials.
