Risk of sourcing from Ancient and Endangered Forests

After engaging in dialogue with Canopy in 2019, Acegreen adopted a Wood and Pulp Sourcing Policy. Acegreen recently published its supplier list and their first CanopyStyle Audit results. While the audit does not fully confirm low risk, it shows that the company is making significant efforts to implement its policy commitments.

Key Improvements Required

  • The company needs to complete a more thorough risk assessment for potential risk suppliers, and to mitigate any risks found.
  • Prioritize the integration and sourcing of Next Generation Solution technologies and feedstocks for future expansion plans. Continue use of Forest Mapper and the Dissolving Pulp Classification to ensure no sourcing from Ancient and Endangered Forests.
  • Accelerate and scale up the use of Next Generation fibre solutions in order to exceed the targets set out in the Next Generation Vision for Viscose: 50% by 2030.
  • Where virgin fibres are used and they are not coming from key priority Ancient and Endangered Forests, procure higher volumes of FSC 100% certified inputs from sources that have achieved FSC Forest Management certification on the ground.

Areas where the company is showing leadership

  • The company has completed its first CanopyStyle Audit, has partnered with leading edge innovators, and undertaken significant research and investment in the development of Next Generation alternative fibres.

  • The company provided a letter to support conservation solutions in key priority Ancient and Endangered Forests in 2021.
