Lenzing to evaluate sustainability scorecard of suppliers
In its sustainability report, Lenzing has highlighted its aim to evaluate the sustainability scorecard of 80 per cent of its suppliers by 2022. As one of the sustainability leaders in the wood-based cellulose fibre sector, the company has committed to make contribution to eco-friendly management along the entire value chain of the textile industry.

“Climate protection and thus the preservation of forests as carbon sinks storing CO2 are two key issues with respect to societal acceptance of the textile and nonwovens industry. In recent years we have contributed to a positive shift in awareness in the industry thanks to our exemplary wood procurement policy based on sustainability principles”, said Stefan Doboczky, CEO of the Lenzing Group on the presentation of the new sustainability report 2017.

Lenzing proactively supports the improvement of the condition and biodiversity of global forests. Lenzing fibres derived from sustainable forest management make a global contribution to climate protection due to the storage of CO2 in growing forests but even more by the replacement of less climate-friendly materials made of fossil fuels.

“We are at the beginning of the value chain and can contribute much to improving the situation thanks to our activities and a maximum level of transparency, especially with partnerships. We will also press ahead even more with the systemic transformation of our industry on the basis of our products, for example by expanding our business with lyocell fibres manufactured in a particularly environmentally responsible manner and innovative solutions such as our Refibratm  technology which partly uses cotton scraps for fibre production. Consumers can be certain of one thing: when they purchase products with our fibres, this will also translate into a positive contribution to a better world," said Lenzing’s chief commercial officer Robert van de Kerkhof.

Today, the Lenzing Group is already one of the leading companies in the circular economy and with respect to eco-conscious process management in its industry. Now, Lenzing has decided to take a major step forward in meeting its high standards by implementing a further substantial reduction of specific emissions by the year 2022. (RR)
