LENZING™ ECOVERO™ is derived from certified renewable wood sources using an eco-responsible production process that meets high environmental standards, resulting in LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibres being tailored to a sustainable lifestyle, contributing to a cleaner environment.
Thanks to these eco-responsible production practices, LENZING™ ECOVERO™ has a much lower environmental impact than generic viscose, as confirmed by the Higg MSI*, leaving air and water cleaner. LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibres are certified with the EU Ecolabel.
In a world of finite natural resources, environmental sustainability requires that less is taken – using only the resources needed, and utilizing them with maximum efficiency. As compared with generic viscose, the production of LENZING™ ECOVERO™ has a substantially smaller environmental footprint.
When it is needed to take from nature, LENZING™ ECOVERO™ seeks to give back responsibly, including water. Furthermore, being cellulosic materials, LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibres are biodegradable and naturally return to nature after disposal, as certified by TÜV AUSTRIA for industrial, home, soil, fresh water and marine conditions*. *Tests were done on LENZING™ Viscose standard fibres.
The natural and renewable raw material, wood and pulp, comes from certified and controlled sources derived from sustainably managed forests. The non- profit environmental protection organization Canopy has consistently ranked Lenzing among the top viscose producers worldwide for their sustainable wood and pulp sourcing practices.
LENZING™ ECOVERO™ generates up to 50% lower water impact*. In addition to maintaining a highly efficient usage rate, water used is cleaned before returning to nature. They also generate up to 50% lower CO2 emissions to air*, helping to combat climate change.
Today’s consumers are increasingly demanding more sustainable fashion choices. In producing eco-responsible viscose fibres, LENZING™ ECOVERO™ follow the maxim “take less, give more”, based on the twin foundations of respect for nature and respect for their customers. They strive to help build a cleaner and greener world by taking less from the environment, maximizing resource efficiency and minimizing waste in the production process to achieve excellent sustainability figures.
*Compared to generic viscose and calculated using the Higg Materials Sustainability Index (Higg MSI) tools provided by the Sustainable Apparel Coalition. The Higg MSI tools assess impacts of materials from cradle-to-gate for a finished materials (e.g. to the point at which the materials are ready to be assembled into a product). However, this figure only shows impacts from cradle to fibre production gate.
