Lenzing, an Austria based producer of wood-based viscose fibres, modal fibres, lyocell fibres and filament yarn, has a sustainability strategy and clear defined goals to reduce its carbon footprint. The company is improving the viscose process by steadily working with key suppliers on improving and ascertaining their sustainability performance.

“Sustainability is very important for Lenzing. It is in our DNA. It is our core focus. We have a final natural positive strategy that is our sustainability strategy wherein we focus on responsibility for forests, water conservation, decarbonisation and sustainable innovation,” Sonja Zak, head of product management, Lenzing, told Fibre2Fashion.

Lenzing is also playing an active role in the Canopy initiative. Zak said, “Canopy is one of our partners that we have defined in our sustainability strategy to improve the whole cellulosic industry. We have defined our supply chain already, with our wood sourcing policy wherein we buy from certified areas and from mills. So, Canopy is a third party proof of our wood sourcing policy.”

The company plans to continue focusing on sustainability in the future. Sustainability is one of its core components, along with product innovations. (KD)
