Lessening the burden on nature
Sustainable wood sources
Lenzing Ecovero viscose fibers are made from wood and pulp sourced from naturally grown, renewable, and certified forests in Europe, certified with the European Eco label. The fibers are biodegradable and even compostable, allowing them to return entirely to nature without causing harm to the environment and keeping our waters clean.
Reduced water impact
The production of LENZING™ ECOVERO™ viscose fibers results in up to 50% less water consumption compared to generic viscose. Additionally, chlorine-free bleaching methods are employed, and wastewater is returned to nature in a clean state after the production process. Production residues do not end up in the environment.
Lower CO2 emissions
The production of Lenzing Ecovero viscose fibers emits up to 50% less CO2 than generic viscose. In this way, we are helping to combat climate change.
