The Lenzing Group stands for ecologically responsible production of specialty fibers made from the renewable raw material wood and strives for the efficient utilization and processing of all raw materials and offers solutions to help redirect the textile sector towards a sustainable industry.
As an innovation leader, Lenzing is a partner of global textile manufacturers and drives many new technological developments.
Lenzing turns commitment into action and launched carbon-zero TENCEL™ branded fibers to kick-start the decarbonization of the textile industry
Make the right choice with carbon zero
TENCEL™ is on a journey to True Carbon Zero, contributing to a carbon neutral textile industry. With a vision to have net-zero emissions by 2050, our three-step plan is already in action: reduce, engage and offset.
Acting on Lenzing’s commitment to the Science Based Targets initiative and supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals, carbon-zero TENCEL™ Lyocell and Modal fibers are certified as CarbonNeutral® products according to The CarbonNeutral Protocol by Natural Capital Partners. These fibers, which mitigate climate impact and protect the environment, are developed with three pillars:
-lowering carbon emissions
-using renewable energy sources at Lenzing production sites
-supporting verified global carbon reduction projects to compensate for fiber-related emissions that are not yet avoidable
Carbon-zero TENCEL™ fibers make carbon neutral possible for the textile industry, brand partners, and end consumers.
TENCEL™ x REFIBRA™ fibers – contribution to circular economy
The pioneering REFIBRA™ technology involves upcycling cotton scraps from garment production. These cotton scraps are transformed into cotton pulp. A substantial proportion – up to one third – of this is added to wood pulp, and the combined raw material is transformed to produce new virgin TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers to make fabrics and garments.
Products made out of TENCEL™ x REFIBRA™ Lyocell fibers unite two innovations: the eco-friendly, closed loop production process of TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers and the upcycling of a substantial proportion of cotton scraps. A special manufacturing system enables TENCEL™ × REFIBRA™ Lyocell fibers to be identified in the final product, even after long textile processing and conversion steps through the value chain.
