Lenzing is committed to reduce its carbon dioxide footprint by half by 2030 and has a vision to become a carbon dioxide-neutral group of companies by 2050, according to Erwin Kuebel, president of Lenzing Fibres Inc. (LFI). He said this when two top US government officials dealing with textiles recently visited the company’s facility in Axis, Alabama.

National Council of Textile Organisations (NCTO) member LFI hosted Bill Jackson, assistant US trade representative for textiles at the US Trade Representative’s (USTR) office, and Lloyd Wood, deputy assistant secretary for textiles, consumers goods and materials at the US commerce department for a plant tour and broad discussion on the company’s commitment to US investment and the administration’s key trade and investment priorities, according to an NCTO press release.

The main focus of the discussion focussed on maintaining the competitiveness of the US textile industry through policies designed to encourage on-shoring, boost exports and support ‘Made in USA’ provisions, particularly the critical Berry Amendment. Jackson also briefed on the pending US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).
