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.
Other key findings include:
– The company has trained managers and other relevant employees in its fibre sourcing policy and shared the policy and a requirement to conform with the policy with its suppliers;
-The company has invested in Next Generation alternative fibres, and is entering a commercial launch phase;
– The company has started to use risk due diligence tools such as ForestMapper and FSC certification in assessing its suppliers.
Canopy recommends that Acegreen:
– Establish and implement a plan to address or eliminate potential at-risk suppliers including improving pulp supplier due diligence and monitoring systems and taking action to mitigate risk.
– Adopt a plan and targets for the use of Next Generation alternative fibres in a commercially competitive way, and develop and implement an internal action plan to achieve 50% by 2030.
