The Lenzing Group in November scored a total of 30.5 points and received a leading dark green shirt, the highest Hot Button ranking category of non-profit Canopy, which grades the world’s 31 largest producers of wood-based fibres with respect to their sustainable wood and pulp sourcing, their efforts with regard to using alternative non-wood feedstock and their achievements for lasting conservation in critical forests around the globe. Lenzing’s commercial wood sources are 100 per cent either certified by FSC1 or PEFC2, or controlled in line with FSC standards. In addition, Lenzing has successfully completed the second Canopy verification audit.
