Risk of sourcing from Ancient & Endangered forests

Zhongtai Textile Company has recently been actively engaged in CanopyStyle. The company has developed and adopted a Wood and Pulp Sourcing Policy commitment in fall 2019. 

Until the CanopyStyle audit is complete, risk level of sourcing from Ancient and Endangered Forests cannot be confirmed.   

Key Improvements Required

  • To share sourcing data and to obtain third party verification through the CanopyStyle audit.
  • Use ForestMapper to ensure future expansion plans and ventures are not located in Ancient and Endangered Forests.
  • We recommend that the company move quickly to have 80-100% of new production capacity originate from Next Generation Solution feedstock and move assertively to substitute alternatives for any current reliance on sourcing from Ancient and Endangered Forests by the end of 2020.
  • To prioritize the development of products that meet or surpass the current market expectation for viscose products containing at least 50% Next Generation raw material input.

Areas where the company is showing leadership

The company has recently engaged in discussions with Canopy. It participated in the 2019 CanopyStyle Shanghai Summit with brands, innovators and producers, it attended a CanopyStyle audit training and has now firmed its commitment by adopting a Wood and Pulp Sourcing Policy.
