Lenzing Group, an international group and a market leader in sustainable produced fibers had been bestowed gold status in EcoVadis CSR rating. The evaluation and analysis cover the four most important CSR practices- environment, fair working conditions, human rights and ethics, and sustainable procurement.

Lenzing achieved top ratings in all areas, making it one of the best-performing companies. “This award makes us very proud and encourages us to continue on our path to becoming a provider of environmentally-friendly specialty fibers. At Lenzing, we look beyond fibers and take responsibility for our children and grandchildren by standing up resolutely against the shortcomings of our time. This attitude is part of our strategic principles and we will continue to work hard to make a sustainable contribution to the environment and society”, Stefan Doboczky, CEO of the Lenzing Group, said in a press release.

In its rating, EcoVadis also emphasised the longstanding practice of sustainable procurement in the Lenzing Group. The responsible procurement of raw materials is another key element in the company’s sustainability strategy. In this ranking, Canopy grades the world’s 32 largest producers of wood-based fibers with respect to their success in achieving sustainable wood and pulp sourcing.
