The Lenzing Group, supplier of high-quality, botanic cellulose fibres to the global textile and nonwovens industry, was rated number one globally for wood in cellulose fibre production, according to the latest global ranking by the Canadian non-profit environmental organisation, Canopy Planet Society, working with 68 retail firms for sustainable sourcing.

In its report, Canopy assessed the performance on forest conservation and wood sourcing practices of the major players of the cellulose fibre industry. It also commended Lenzing for its new Tencel fibre, which uses cotton fabric waste as an alternative source of raw material.

Lenzing has been focusing on optimising the sourcing of the renewable raw material wood for more than 20 years in accordance with the principle of sustainability. The company mainly relies on the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification system whenever possible. In Europe with its strict forest regulations, Lenzing also makes use of the PEFC program as a means of demonstrating its sustainable procurement activities. Close to 100 per cent of the wood and pulp used by the Lenzing Group is already certified by FSC or PEFC or is controlled in line with these standards.

The combination of high wood and pulp procurement standards with best practice process technologies reflects the sustainability leadership of the Lenzing Group. Both the production of Lenzing Viscose fibres and the wide range of specialties, such as the Tencel fibre and Lenzing Modal, are produced using high environmental standards and highly resource-efficient closed loop processes.

Lenzing has been working steadily on the further improvement and environmental responsibility of its production processes. In this regard, Lenzing relies on the principle of closed loop production as well as the complete use of the raw material wood in its “biorefinery”. R&D expenditures of the Lenzing Group, which are already significantly higher than the industry average, were further increased in the current 2016 financial year to enable the company to press ahead with the development of new, ecologically-driven technologies.
