EGGER Unterradlberg receives award for environmental statement
The EGGER plant in Unterradlberg was awarded first place in the EMAS environmental statement category: The environmental statement impressed the seven-member jury of experts above all with its transparency with regard to current environmental performance, environmental aspects, environmental impact and the company's environmental management system. In addition to the quality of the environmental statement and its graphic design, this category also focuses on its use in environmental communication.
