Sustainable Wood Sourcing: Lenzing Number One in the World



  • Ranked first by the Canadian environmental organization Canopy Planet Society
  • Re-confirmation of Lenzing’s leadership role in the field of sustainability
  • Acknowledgment of the innovative strength of Lenzing’s new TENCEL® fiber from recycled cotton waste

The Lenzing Group was rated number one globally with respect to the procurement of wood, the key raw material in cellulose fiber production. This was the conclusion of the latest global ranking compiled by the Canadian non-profit environmental organization Canopy Planet Society, who cooperates with 68 leading retail brands in the textile industry worldwide and is a driver in evaluating sustainable sourcing processes. Achieving the leading position in this ranking is another major recognition of Lenzing’s sustainability leadership that is documented by numerous prizes, labels and certifications.  In its report , Canopy assessed the performance on forest conservation and wood sourcing practices of the major players of the cellulose fiber industry. It also commended Lenzing for its new TENCEL® fiber, which uses cotton fabric waste as an alternative source of raw material. (Copyright: Lenzing Aktiengesellschaft - 11/2016)
