Carnegie has become the first textile company with a textile product, Xorel, which has got Living Product Challenge Certification. Biobased Xorel is the groundbreaking environmental high-performance textile sourced from sugar cane. The certification requires disclosure of ingredients and environmental impacts using ISO compliant LCA (Life Cycle Assessment.

The Living Product Challenge is a transparent, holistic framework for rethinking the way things are manufactured, weaving together life cycle assessment, social equity and material health impacts. It helps manufacturers design and offer products with measurably net positive impacts and designers easily select products that give more than they take. This programme is the only to require disclosure of ingredients and disclosure of environmental impacts using ISO compliant LCA (Life Cycle Assessment).

Carnegie is now pursuing multiple petal certifications under Living Product Challenge which is a programme of the International Living Future Institute.

Biobased Xorel textiles are resourced from rapidly renewable sugar cane and have a significantly lower environmental footprint versus fossil fuel derived products. Introduced in 2013, Biobased Xorel has garnered numerous awards and third-party certifications including Cradle to Cradle Gold recognition. Biobased Xorel is recognised as the only high-performance plant-based textile in the commercial interiors industry.
