Lenzing’s Veocel brand introduced its carbon-neutral lyocell fibers for the nonwoven industry. Partnered with the Natural Capital Partners, Lenzing produces the lyocell fiber using high production efficiencies, renewable energy sources, low-carbon materials and an external nature-based carbon removal project. The fibers will be certified CarbonNeutral with a net-zero carbon footprint according to the CarbonNeutral Protocol, as of June 2021.
The lyocell fibers are part of the science-based targets initiative around reduction of total global carbon emissions, driven by the UN Paris Agreement. Materials and goods produced with Veocel Lyocell fibers certified as CarbonNeutral products will feature the Veocel “Climate Care” logo.
