Lenzing to become entirely carbon neutral by 2050

The Lenzing Group is an international group with its headquarter in LenzingAustria, and production sites in all major markets. Lenzing produces wood-based viscose fibers, modal fibers, lyocell fibers and filament yarn, which are used in the textile industry – in clothing, home textiles and technical textiles – as well as in the nonwovens industry. Lenzing plans to drastically reduce its CO2 footprint and become entirely carbon neutral by 2050.

By 2030 the chemical group’s aim is to reduce its CO2 emissions per tonne of product by almost 50 per cent both inside its operational boundaries and in its supply chain. The group will cut its emissions, for instance, by adapting new technologies in current production processes and in new production plants. It will improve energy efficiency and increase the share of renewable energy sources. One current project to achieve this is the transformation from coal to bioenergy at its production site in China.

Lenzing’s decarbonisation targets make it a frontrunner, not only in the world of fiber producers but also among major industrial companies. Lenzing will use blockchain technology to support its Tencel branded fiber business. This will ensure complete transparency and traceability for brands and consumers of its fibers in the finished garment. The supply chain transparency from wood to garment and home textiles will enable all customers and partners to identify Tencel fibers and the respective wood source in each production and distribution step. Thanks to a QR code on the final garment, consumers will be able to detect the origin of the clothes they intend to buy.
