Lenzing ranked number one globally for sustainable wood sourcing by Canadian environmental organization Canopy Planet Society 

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. Lenzing has been focusing on optimizing the sourcing of the renewable raw material wood for more than 20 years in accordance with the principle of sustainability. Close to 100 percent 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.

EcoVadis's insight:

Congrats to Lenzing for this achievement! Great to see more and more companies leading the way to sustainable sourcing.

EcoVadis's insight:

The EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) since March 3rd imposes responsibilities to develop a risk management system for E.U. traders' who place timber and timber products on the EU market.  The Regulation is legally binding on all 27 EU Member States.
