Acegreen CanopyStyle Audit - Canopy

Acegreen CanopyStyle Audit

Acegreen’s CanopyStyle Audit, which covers its lyocell filament production, was completed in May 2021. It confirmed that Acegreen, which partnered with CanopyStyle in 2020, showed significant progress in developing and implementing their fibre sourcing policies over the past year. Though some potential risk in Acegreen’s supply chain was identified, the audit found no confirmed known risk of sourcing from Ancient and Endangered Forests or other controversial sources. The audit confirmed Acegreen’s progress in developing and testing recycled cotton Next Generation feedstocks in the lyocell filament it produces.

聚泰环保在2021年5月完成了CanopyStyle审核,审核范围涵盖莱赛尔纤维的生产。经审核确认,聚泰环保自2020年加入CanopyStyle倡议之后的一年里,开发并落实了纤维采购政策,获得实质性进展。尽管审核发现了聚泰环保供应链中存在部分潜在风险,但已证实不存在来自原始濒危森林或其它争议性地区的明确的采购风险。审核还证实聚泰环保在开发与测试回收棉作为莱赛尔纤维生产的下一代原材料方面的进展。
