Lenzing will rely in future on electricity generated from renewable energies.
The hope is that concepts such as these will make Lenzing less dependent on global energy markets in the medium to long term and further support its transition from a linear to a circular economy model. Lenzing has already installed photovoltaic systems to reduce its carbon emissions even further in line with strategic targets. In 2019, Lenzing became the first fiber manufacturer to set a target to reduce its carbon emissions by 50 percent by 2030 and to be climate neutral by 2050. Lenzing is also currently investing in reducing carbon emissions at sites worldwide.
