Lenzing Group, an Austrian leading provider of specialty fibres, has announced the appointment of Jurgen Eizinger, vice president of the global nonwovens business at Lenzing, to the board of governors of the industry association European Disposables and Nonwovens Association (EDANA) in June 2021. Lenzing has been a longstanding member of EDANA since 1980.
“Lenzing has been investing in the development of sustainable innovation for many years and supports the implementation of numerous sustainability and climate targets, most notably the ambitious goal of halving carbon emissions by 2030 and achieving carbon neutrality throughout the group by 2050,” according to the company’s press release. “Thanks to the company’s new role at EDANA, the leading association for the nonwovens industry comprising more than 300 members worldwide, the whole sector will derive greater benefit from Lenzing’s expertise.”
“Lenzing has developed significant expertise over recent decades as one of the pioneers in the entire sector and, by leveraging this role, will remain highly involved in the systemic transition to a circular economy in future,” Robert van de Kerkhof, member of the managing board at Lenzing, said in a press release.
EDANA’s vision is to provide global leadership in creating an environment that is beneficial to the sustainable and profitable growth of the nonwovens, engineered fabrics and related industries. It provides a comprehensive portfolio of services, as well as information and data geared towards promoting the sustainable development of the industry’s objectives and performance, the company added.
“Thanks to our membership, as well as gaining the support of experts from various fields, we are in a position to influence the issues and challenges facing the nonwovens industry across the whole supply chain. We can now also make a sustainable contribution in Lenzing’s capacity as a raw material supplier,” Eizinger said.
Lenzing has always been exceptionally committed to promoting issues such as sustainability and the responsible treatment of raw materials. Since the launch of its environmental campaign #ItsInOurHands in late 2019 via the Veocel fibre brand, the company has been supporting a movement to enhance awareness and transparency regarding materials used in wet wipes.
