The Hot Button Report

2018 Hot Button Ranking

Welcome to this year’s CanopyStyle Ranking.

Canopy’s Hot Button Ranking and Report is now the primary fibre sourcing analysis tool for the 160+ brands, retailers and designers who are part of the CanopyStyle initiative. The Hot Button supplies information that will help brands select viscose supply chain partners and realize their sourcing commitments. It offers a detailed overview of the largest global producers of viscose, ranking their raw material sourcing practices, documenting the risk of sourcing from Ancient and Endangered Forests, highlighting research and development of lower impact fibers and new disruptive innovation, and also noting when producers are showing leadership in supporting global forest conservation solutions.

Note: When using the Ranking grid below, you may hover over the ranking criteria headers (or tap the ? icon on mobile) for more information about each criteria. You may also click the company name for each entry to view the full ranking data for that company.
