Key Improvements Required
The immediate next step for Xinxiang Bailu Chemical Fiber is to formalize agreement with the auditor to initiate the third party verification of progress indicators in policy implementation and additional solutions proposed by the CanopyStyle initiative.
Given growth projections in the sector, Xinxiang Bailu Chemical Fiber should proactively screen any future ventures and new supply against the ForestMapper and aggressively build next generation solutions into their fiber projections for the coming years.
Areas where the company is showing leadership
When prompted, Xinxiang Bailu Chemical Fiber engages in dialogue with Canopy and customer brands. In 2016, the company got its mill FSC COC certified; the certificate code for the mill is SCS-COC-005849. Apart for these opportunities, Xinxiang Bailu Chemical Fiber has moved slowly on its CanopyStyle commitment and is encouraged to demonstrate further leadership.
