Social and Community Involvement

In its charitable and sponsoring activities, the Lenzing Group expresses a clear commitment to long-term partnerships and continuity.

Once an agreement is made, the Lenzing Group makes sure that its partners can rely on its support. In return, Lenzing expects the money it donates to be used for the intended purpose and as effectively as possible so the support really arrives where it is needed. Lenzing follows a clear-cut course in these activities. Financial assistance is supposed to benefit a community; individuals are given aid only in exceptional cases. Lenzing does not support political parties or political clubs or organizations with ethically inacceptable values or unclear goals either directly or indirectly. At least EUR 500,000 is spent annually on donations and sponsoring. The Group’s social and community involvement is geared to the regional and cultural conditions on-site.

Lenzing´s Sustainability Report – Renewable Raw Materials

Renewable raw materials are the industrial future of the fiber industry. Our fiber products are part of the natural cellulose cycle. One outstanding trait of our products is that they are highly compostable. The wood or pulp for our cellulose fiber products stems largely from sustainably managed sources. We therefore know the origins of our key forests and plantations and their methods of production. The importance of cellulose fibers on the world market is growing because consumers increasingly value products manufactured in an environmentally friendly way.
