Lenzing Group’s Wood and Pulp Policy

In its Wood and Pulp Policy, Lenzing is committed to procuring wood and dissolving wood pulp exclusively from non-controversial sources. Suppliers participate in credible forest certification programs, in particular the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC). The supply of wood and pulp of a specified quality and quantity to all of the Group’s pulp and fiber production sites is an important part of the Lenzing Group’s core business. For more information, please see the “Raw material security” chapter.

As an extension to its Wood and Pulp policy, Lenzing established a Bioenergy Policy in 2023. This policy ensures that biomass for energy use is not sourced from controversial sources, such as deforestation. For more information on this policy, please see the ”Climate change” chapter.

Group Waste Management Guideline

Within Lenzing, waste management is set out in its internal Waste Management Guideline, which was launched in 2018. The guideline was further developed in 2021 and updated in 2022, which resulted in a full consolidation of Group waste data. It is an integral part of Lenzing’s environmental management system. Activities relating to waste management – e.g. the collection, separation, storage, transportation, and treatment of waste – are planned and implemented based on possible utilization as well as understanding of associated environmental impact and risks. Further details on waste management are set out in each sites’ waste management systems, which also concern external service providers.

Group Environmental Standard

All Lenzing production sites fulfil the national legislative requirements and are ISO 14001 certified. The Environmental Standard is an important component of the Group’s Environmental Management System. It is the basis for developing Lenzing’s environmental program and the medium- and long-term environmental targets.

Lenzing’s Environmental Standard has been developed with the consideration of industry and market standards as well as the expectations of relevant stakeholders. The Standard and the key environmental limit values in the Standard are based on the relevant Best Available Techniques (BATs) under the EU Industrial Emission Directive (IED) as well as the better market performances defined by the EU Ecolabel.
