  • All Lenzing sites strive to fulfill the EU Ecolabel standard by 2022

The Lenzing Group, producer of botanic fibers from wood, expands its environmental leadership commitment. As a leader in wood-based cellulosic fibers, Lenzing has particular responsibility and ambition to help raising the bar in sustainability in the textile and nonwovens industries. To fulfill this vision, Lenzing is continuing its ambitious roadmap by investing more than EUR 100 mn in sustainable manufacturing technologies and production facilities until 2022.
 
Lenzing’s circular operating models with closed loop production processes set the standard in the industry. In order to further extend the environmental leadership, a major part of this investment will focus on closed loop production technologies for the expansion of the sulfur recovery systems. The second area of investment will be in improving the effluent treatment units. In addition, Lenzing will upgrade its energy usage to more sustainable solutions reducing its greenhouse gas emissions due to the construction of a gas boiler at its site in China. This investment strengthens Lenzing’s sustainability leadership at its Viscose facility in Nanjing.
 
The investments underline Lenzing’s commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) as guiding principles for its sustainability agenda. One of the most significant SDGs for the company is SDG 12: Responsible production and consumption.
 
Stefan Doboczky, Chief Executive Officer, comments: “The textile and the nonwoven industries face fundamental challenges related to sustainability. Lenzing is passionate to take a leadership role in addressing this and making the world a better place. Our holistic approach to sustainability underpins this scope. The new eco-investment program is a major step forward in our ambitions.”
 
“The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are a universal call for a sustainable economy that protects the planet and ensures prosperity and well-being for all people”, states Lenzing Chief Commercial
Officer Robert van de Kerkhof. “With our REFIBRA™ technology, Lenzing is innovating to support a more circular, bio-based economy, contributing in particular to SDG 12”, he adds.
 
With the Lenzing Group sustainability targets announced in 2018, Lenzing strives to upgrade all its production sites to the ambitious European Ecolabel standard by 2022. As a result, Lenzing is one of the first companies to commit to a global sustainability-oriented manufacturing standard.

Prof. Dr. Berthold Stegemerten, Vizepräsident für Studium und Lehre, betonte die Relevanz der Veranstaltung auch für die Studierenden: „Hier können Sie zum einen sehen, welche Themen für die Industrie relevant sind. Zum anderen können die Studierenden ihre Projekte Vertretern der Industrie selbst vorstellen. Das macht die Qualität einer anwendungsorientierten Hochschule aus.“ Auch Fachbereichsdekan Prof. Dr. Lutz Vossebein freute sich über die gelungene Integration studentischer Arbeiten auf den Branchentreff.
 
Die 4. MG Open Spaces standen in diesem Jahr unter der Überschrift „Textile Visionen“. Erstmals gab es einen internationalen Master Congress. Dort stellten Studierende ihre Forschungs- und Masterarbeiten vor. Ein Teil der Arbeiten thematisierte die 17 „Sustainable Development Goals“. Zu sehen gab es einen textilen Globus, Textilien mit dem gut erkennbaren Hinweis einer nachhaltigen Herstellung und vieles mehr. Das Thema Nachhaltigkeit war kaum zu übersehen.
 
Am Donnerstagabend war der Auftakt der MG Open Spaces mit einem Food-for-thought-Dinner im Foyer der Firma van Laack GmbH. Joachim Hensch von der Hugo Boss AG sprach zum Thema „Industrie 4.0 in der Bekleidungsindustrie“. Und Bernd Werner von dem Beratungsunternehmen Gruppe Nymphenburg Consult AG referierte über das Thema Neuromarketing „Dem Kunden in den Kopf geschaut? Modeeinkauf stationär oder online aus neurophysiologischer Sicht“.
