EGGER presents solutions for the sustainable use of wood at the 2018 UN Climate Conference
EGGER is at the forefront of industry in addressing sustainability issues related to resource scarcity and global warming. Recycling management and carbon storage are at the heart of EGGER's business model. These ideas and solutions are presented by an international wood-based panel producer from 2 to 14 December 2018 at the UN World Climate Summit COP24 in Katowice, Poland.
Simultaneously with the negotiations at the UN international climate conference, Katowice is currently hosting the world's largest international exhibition devoted to climate protection: Countries and organisations present themselves in their own pavilions, and during accompanying events, representatives of business, science and non-governmental organisations exchange views on best practice projects. EGGER could also demonstrate its services and attitudes through exhibition space and presentations under the slogan "Beyond CO2 Targets - Climate Responsibility embedded in our Core Business".
EGGER products save resources
EGGER's presence focuses on the sustainable use of wood in a resource-efficient, closed material cycle. 90% of the raw materials used by EGGER are biogenic raw materials and coal storage materials. The use of recycled wood (e.g. used furniture) also protects natural resources and extends the useful life of valuable raw materials. In the case of cascade use of wood, only that part of the wood that can no longer be used for material recycling is locally converted into renewable energy. This means that about 90 % of the energy produced at EGGER plants is climate neutral. In addition, EGGER invests in the best available technologies in its production facilities, uses state-of-the-art emission control systems and continuously optimises its processes.
