Eastman’s CanopyStyle Audit, which covers its Naia fibre line, was completed in September 2021. The audit found no direct risk of sourcing from Ancient and Endangered Forests and recognizes Eastman’s continued positive engagement of a supplier that is linked to risk via ownership.
Other key findings include:
-The company has procedures in place to assess risk related to Ancient and Endangered Forests and other controversial sources;
-The company has invested in Next Generation alternative fibres, and is entering a commercial launch phase;
-The company has increased its proportion of FSC certified fibres since its first CanopyStyle Audit.
Canopy recommends that Eastman:
-Launch a commercial product containing Next Generation alternative fibres and scale up to meet targets of 50% by 2030;
-Continues to increase the amount of FSC fibre used, with preference for FSC 100% sources;
-Continue to engage suppliers to mitigate risk and support conservation solutions on the ground.
