Lenzing achieves highest Hot Button in Canopy rankings

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.

45 fashion brands commit to keeping forests standing

On World Rainforest Day (June 22), 45 brands, including Walmart-owned ASDA/George, Ralph Lauren, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Bestseller, Ivy & Oak, Masai, Fiber X Finland, Nanushka, and Ted Baker—which together represent $100 billion in annual revenue—launched CanopyStyle policies to transform the viscose supply chain and protect the world’s forests. The CanopyStyle initiative now represents 259 brands worth over $370 billion in total revenue working together to create demand, shift supply chains, and implement more sustainable sourcing practices.

The report, Dirty Fashion: Crunch Time, ranks 100 well-known fashion brands, including Nike, Costco, Walmart, TJ Maxx, Asos and Levi’s, and luxury retailers like Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada and Versace on their responsible viscose production plans and commitments and progress on transparency.
