Kronospan Egorievsk Adopt Fallow Deer
The first Kronospan factory in Russia was built in the Egorievsk region of Moscow in 2004. Over the course of many years of continued development the company has become one of the biggest producers of wood-based panels and value added products in Russia.
Kronospan continually reduces its impact on the environment by reducing energy and raw material usage by using new and improved technology. State-of-the-art treatment facilities have been installed which accurately regulate atmospheric emission purification, waste water, soils, as well as ensuring ethical waste disposal. Additional investment will further improve environmental protection and we strive to use the most advanced solutions.
Eighteen fallow deer now live on the Egorievsk site. They were brought to Egorievsk from the Shchelokovskiy region in 2013. They have their own secure area, which provides them with plenty of space to roam. Kronospan employees look after them on a daily basis, providing food and helping to keep them clean.
The fallow deer is an attractive looking, medium-sized deer, native to Europe and Western Asia and has four main colour variations. The male (known as bucks) antlers are often large and impressive. They graze on pasture and tree leaves. The European fallow deer is comparable to the red deer in terms of speed and grace of motion.
The animals have adapted themselves to the local climate and contact with Kronospan employees. The contented, healthy existence of the deer within the factory site shows the environmentally friendly nature of Kronospan.
We are also pleased to report further good news as the number of deer at Egorievsk will increase in the near future, as two does are expecting.
