2021年10月20日 – 今天，非营利性环保组织Canopy联合独立第三方审核机构Preferred by Nature（前身为NEPCon）和SCS Global Services以及六家再生纤维素纤维生产商共同声明发布CanopyStyle审核报告。
The companies that have recently published their audits include: Acegreen (lyocell filament), Eastman Chemical (acetate), E. Miroglio (viscose filament yarn), MI Demo (viscose staple fibre), Mitsubishi (acetate), and Nanjing (viscose staple fibre).
近期已公开审核报告的公司包括聚泰环保材料（莱赛尔纤维）、伊士曼化工（醋酸盐）、E. Miroglio（粘胶长丝）、MI Demo（粘胶短纤）、三菱化学（醋酸盐）、南京化纤（粘胶短纤）。
“Canopy is thrilled to see new entrants dive into the CanopyStyle Audit process, as well as producers showing ongoing commitment with their second annual audits completed,” said Nicole Rycroft, Executive Director at Canopy. “As the initiative continues to grow, we expect to see more green shirts in the Hot Button Report, as well as deeper levels of investment in conservation and the development of low impact Next Generation fibre solutions.”
The audits, conducted for MMCF producers based around the world, found a variety of results: from producers confirmed to be fully low risk of sourcing from Ancient and Endangered Forests and other controversial sources, to those that are deeply engaging with their suppliers, to those who are just beginning the journey and require additional information from their suppliers.
