“I am glad that our pioneering work for sustainability is being recognized by reviewers worldwide. Eco-responsibility represents a key component of our group strategy and we put a major emphasis on it,” explains Lenzing CEO Stefan Doboczky. “The notable Biobased Product Label will help inform consumers about the high ecological standards of our products and our corporate values.”
Lenzing fibers are not only derived 100% from nature, but they are also returned to nature at the end of their life cycle. Standard Lenzing fibers are demonstrably 100% biodegradable and even compostable. Lenzing proves this with a series of certificates.
Accordingly, Lenzing is in tune with the growing trend towards ecology and sustainability. Global customers in the textile and nonwovens industry are increasingly turning to raw materials which do not unnecessarily harm the environment when they are produced or disposed of.
The certification of biobased products is part of the BioPreferred program implemented by the USDA. It is designed to motivate government institutions and companies to purchase biobased products or those which largely consist of biological materials.
