It also says that despite the current technological challenges, it is expected that a commitment towards the research, development and promotion of alternative fibres be reconsidered by ENKA and inserted into the company’s forest sourcing policy and strategic planning. As mentioned in the CanopyStyle audit framework, the company is expected to notify Canopy should it decide to expand its supplier list beyond the current source. It is expected that the company continue to implement its policy and meet the expectations of the CanopyStyle initiative. The release of ENKA’s audit comes quickly on the heels of public release of audits by viscose giants Sateri and Tangshan Sanyou, and indicates a growing momentum behind the CanopyStyle initiative, which requires robust third party auditing as well as supply-chain transparency. Since its launch in 2013, CanopyStyle has been recognised as one of the fastest moving environmental issues within the apparel industry. Over the past four years, and now with the support of 160 brands, designers and retailers representing $170 billion in annual sales, CanopyStyle has secured sourcing commitments from producers representing 70 per cent of the global production capacity of viscose. To date, 52 per cent of the global production capacity of viscose has made its audit results public. These audits are to be conducted annually and are a key tool to document performance on the implementation of forest commitments. (SV)
