Eco Vero is an environmentally friendly viscose fiber from Lenzing. Eco Vero fibers are made from wood, a natural and renewable raw material. The wood comes from sustainable forestry plantations. Lenzing’s wood sourcing policy ensures that the most sustainable wood sources are used for viscose production.
Lenzing’s viscose production sites where Eco Vero fibers are produced comply with the stringent guidelines of the EU Eco Label, a world-leading environmental manufacturing standard.
The EU Eco Label is a sign of environmental excellence and is awarded to products and services meeting high environmental standards throughout their lifecycles: from raw material extraction to production, distribution and disposal. In addition, the flagship viscose production in Austria uses a significant amount of renewable bio-energy in the manufacturing process.
A special manufacturing system enables Lenzing to identify Eco Vero fibers in the final product, long after the textile processing and conversion steps. Thus retailers and brands are fully assured that they are indeed incorporating the eco-friendly viscose, and not a generic market viscose.
The environmental awareness of consumers has been growing steadily over the last decade, more recently in the fashion and textile industry. Textile consumption is expected to double by 2025, and the industry is anxiously looking for more sustainable solutions with minimal eco-footprint. Achieving low environmental impact requires developing eco-friendly raw materials and a sustainable manufacturing process.
