中纺院绿色纤维股份公司完成并发布首次CanopyStyle审核

Xinxiang, Henan Province, China, Vancouver, BC, Canada, May 31, 2021: Today, environmental not-for-profit Canopy, third-party auditor Preferred by Nature (formerly NEPCon), and China Textile Academy (CTA) released its first CanopyStyle audit report.

中国河南省新乡市,加拿大温哥华,2021531:今天,非营利性环保组织Canopy、第三方审核机构Preferred by Nature(前身是NEPCon)和中国纺织科学研究院(CTA)共同发布中纺院的首次CanopyStyle审核报告。

The audit found that while the majority of China Textile Academy’s pulp suppliers are low risk of sourcing from priority Ancient and Endangered Forests and other controversial sources, the audit was not able to fully confirm low risk for two of its dissolving pulp suppliers.

此审核发现中纺院的大部分浆粕供应商处于来自重要原始濒危森林和其它争议性地区的低采购风险,然而本审核不能完全确认其中两家溶解浆供应商的低采购风险。

“As the CanopyStyle initiative looks to engage the remaining 48% of the supply chain that has not yet reached green shirt status in our Hot Button Ranking, it is wonderful to see China Textile Academy is not connected to high-risk sourcing. We are encouraged that CTA is moving quickly on steps to implement their CanopyStyle sourcing policy by engaging with suppliers, and being willing to increase the use of FSC-certified fibre for their lyocell production,” said Nicole Rycroft, Executive Director at Canopy.

“CanopyStyle倡议中有48%的黏胶供应商尚未获得绿色衬衫的纽扣评级,而我们喜见中纺院没有出现高风险采购。目前,中纺院在执行CanopyStyle采购政策方面迅速响应,与其供应商积极沟通,有意愿提高莱赛尔纤维产线中FSC认证纤维的用量,对此我们深受鼓舞。”Canopy执行总裁Nicole Rycroft如是说。

“CTA is excited to be part of the CanopyStyle initiative and working collaboratively to reduce the impact of our operations on forests. The CanopyStyle Audits are an important tool to support us in better understanding risks in our supply chain. We look forward to continuing this important work with Canopy and taking action on the recommendations of the audit,” said the general manager, Mr. Jia Baoliang at CTA.

“中纺院非常高兴加入CanopyStyle倡议,通过与Canopy的合作,致力于减轻我们的经营对森林的影响。CanopyStyle审核是一个重要的工具,能帮助我们更好地了解供应链风险。我们将继续推进与Canopy的合作,根据审核报告中的建议作出行动。”中纺院总经理贾保良如是说。

“Preferred by Nature is pleased to be an independent auditing body for the CanopyStyle initiative and in particular making it possible to meet the growing demand for CanopyStyle Audits throughout Asia,” stated Jon Jickling, Director of Solutions at Preferred by Nature.

 

“Preferred by Nature很荣幸能成为CanopyStyle倡议的独立审核机构,助力满足亚洲日益增长的CanopyStyle审核需求。”Preferred by Nature解决方案总监Jon Jickling如是说。

Key findings of the audit include that CTA has:

重要审核结果包含中纺院已经:

  • Developed a sourcing policy in line with CanopyStyle initiative and communicated this policy with all suppliers.
  • 制定与CanopyStyle倡议相一致的采购政策,将此采购政策告知所有供应商。
  • Collected information from its pulp suppliers and conducted an initial risk assessment of pulp sources.
  • 从浆粕供应商征询信息,完成初步浆粕风险评估。
  • Made its supplier list publicly available on the company’s official website.

  • Developed an action plan to source FSC certified dissolving pulp from FSC certified forestry operations. The plan includes a commitment to increase its use of FSC certified pulp by 5% annually.
  • 制定一项行动计划,从FSC认证的林地采购FSC认证的溶解浆。该计划包含承诺FSC认证浆粕的使用量每年提高5%。

Moving forward, Canopy recommends that CTA:

此后,Canopy建议中纺院:

  • Engage, with support from Canopy, pulp suppliers where low-risk levels have not yet been confirmed.
  • 与尚未确定低采购风险的浆粕供应商保持沟通,对此Canopy将给予支持。
  • Develop/update the company’s risk assessment procedures to include evaluation of potentially controversial sources related to legality, conversion of forests after 1994, GMOs, and human and traditional rights.
  • 制定/更新公司的风险评估程序,囊括对潜在争议性来源的评估,例如非法采伐、1994年之后转化的林地、转基因林地、人权与传统社区权益。
  • Insert compliance with CTA policy requirements into contracts with dissolving pulp suppliers.
  • 与溶解浆供应商签订的合同中添加中纺院采购政策合规性的要求。
  • Source bamboo and dissolving pulp from FSC-certified forestry operations to help address potential risks.
  • 从FSC认证的林地采购竹浆和溶解浆,进一步降低潜在风险。
  • Adopt ambitious public targets and timelines for increasing the use of Next Generation alternative fibres in a commercially competitive way.
  • 制定和公开前瞻性的目标与时间表,提高具有商业竞争力的下一代替代纤维的应用。
