Homann Holzwerkstoffe publishes second Sustainability Report

  • Consistent implementation of the sustainability strategy and defined goals in 2022
  • Investment in new technologies and equipment for more sustainable and efficient production
  • Emission reduction measures initiated

Munich, 25 May 2023 – Homann Holzwerkstoffe GmbH, a leading European supplier of thin, refined wooden fibreboards for the furniture, doors and coatings industries, today published its second Sustainability Report on the basis of the GRI standards and taking into account the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

While the Group adopted its sustainability strategy and defined sustainability goals in 2021, the focus in the financial year 2022 was on implementing the resulting measures. In all three fields of action – “We care for our relationships”, “We face up to the challenges” and “We deliver performance” – important initial progress has been made.

Homan Holzwerkstoffe Group attaches great importance to sustainability, especially with regard to its main raw material, wood. The company sources its wood from sustainably managed forests and uses up to 100% of the incoming raw materials in its manufacturing process. In order to further advance the topic of wood recycling, Homann Holzwerkstoffe has been participating in the EU research project “EcoReFibre” since last year and is making a significant contribution to promoting the use of recycled wood in fibreboard production.

In addition, the Group is continually investing in new technologies and equipment to make its production even more sustainable and efficient, and to reduce its emissions even further. At the Krosno site in Poland, a new biomass boiler was installed in 2022, which was commissioned during 2023 and replaced the old coal boiler. These and other measures will contribute to the targeted reduction of emissions.

“With the measures taken and the investments made in 2022, we are working towards achieving the goals we have set ourselves,” emphasizes Fritz Homann, Managing Partner of Homann Holzwerkstoffe GmbH. “Together with our committed employees, we are intensively addressing issues such as wood recycling, emission reduction and product innovations, and we are communicating our progress transparently. Our Sustainability Report 2022 is another step on this path.”

The Sustainability Report 2022 of Homann Holzwerkstoffe Group provides information on the company’s main areas of focus and shows the development of key figures and goals in the past financial year. The full Sustainability Report for 2022 is available for download at https://www.homann-holzwerkstoffe.de/en/company/sustainability/.
