Lenzing AG has been producing regenerated fibres from renewable raw material wood since 1938. It unites all stages of fibre production from raw material and cellulose generation to fibre production at the same site in Austria which makes it the biggest integrated cellulose and viscose plant in the world.
“All our fibres have the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certificate and are an essential part of doing business. We now consider the Oeko-Tex standard 100 certificate as a basic requirement to do business”, Ms Christina Kreuzwieser - Head of Marketing Communication (Textile fibres) told fibre2fashion.
Winning eco-responsibility certificates is not something new to the Lenzing Group. Earlier it has received certificates from FSC which proves that wood is derived from responsibly managed forests, from PEFC which proves that wood is derived from sustainably managed sources and also bagged a tag of “Responsible Care’ company.
Lenzing also has to its credit the ISO 14001 environmental management certification, which is given to companies which identify and control the environmental impact of their activities, products or services, improve environmental performance continually and implement a systematic approach to setting environmental objectives and targets.
Elisabeth Stanger, Global Marketing Director of Nonwoven Fibers, a division of Lenzing adds, “We want to take on an exemplary role with regard to the further processing of our products during subsequent production stages. As a global market leader, we have to set standards right at the start of the textile added value chain”.
