Due to the constantly evolving regulations and the associated uncertainties of interpretation, EGGER has
chosen a restrictive approach to identify taxonomy-eligible economic activities. In addition, the extended
requirements and regulatory developments, may lead to changes in regard to the qualification of economic activities.
EGGER is obliged according to Art. 8 Z 1 in conjunction with § 267a UGB EGGER to fulfil the requirements of the EU Taxonomy Regulation. For this purpose, EGGER has analysed the economic activities in the company and checked whether these correspond to the description in Annex I (significant contribution to climate change mitigation) or Annex II (significant contribution to climate change adaptation) of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2020/852 and can thus be declared as taxonomy eligible.
Turnover, capital and operating expenses related to these economic activities can be declared as taxonomy-eligible. In principle, all fully consolidated Group companies are included in this consideration with regard to their turnover, capital and operating expenses.
The amounts used for the calculation of the turnover, CapEx and OpEx KPIs are accordingly based on the figures reported in the consolidated financial statements.
