Risk of sourcing from Ancient and Endangered Forests

Until the company successfully completes a CanopyStyle Audit and its results are made publicly available, Silver Hawk may have risk of sourcing from Ancient and Endangered Forests and other controversial areas.

Canopy recommends a considered approach by the marketplace at this stage.

Key Improvements Required

  • The company has not yet developed and adopted a Wood and Pulp Sourcing Policy commitment. The immediate next step for Silver Hawk is to develop a strong sourcing policy.
  • Once this is accomplished, the next action required for its implementation will be to share sourcing data and to complete third party verification through the CanopyStyle Audit process.
  • Use Forest Mapper and complementary guidance documents such as the Dissolving Pulp Mill Classification to ensure that all current and any new suppliers are not sourcing from Ancient and Endangered Forests.
  • Following auditing, Shandong Silver Hawk can then address any sourcing issues that are identified and progress on remaining sustainability steps, such as supporting conservation solutions and driving the use of new alternative fibres.

Areas where the company is showing leadership

Silver Hawk attended the CanopyStyle Summit in China in 2019. However, despite attempts by Canopy to contact and follow up, to date there has been no engagement.

Number of viscose, lyocell and dissolving pulp mills + location and production volumes

Silver Hawk Group has two viscose staple fibre mills in China.

  • Xinjiang Silver Hawk mill viscose production capacity is 160 000 tonnes.
  • Shandong Silver Hawk mill viscose production capacity is 80 000 tonnes.

The company produces man-made cellulosic fibre (MMCF) and nonwovens, mainly standard viscose fibres and rayon.
