During the reporting period TENCEL® fibers were given a prestigious award in the field of sustainability. Due to its environmentally compatible manufacturing process, TENCEL® received the highest number of points among all established textile fibers in the Materials Sustainability Index (MSI), which is the quantitative part of the Higg Index. This assessment takes account of the environmental impact of production with regard to chemicals, energy, greenhouse gas emissions, water, land use and wastes. The Higg Index is the core component of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, an association of leading companies in the textile and chemical industry, non-profit organizations as well as research and educational experts aiming to create a more sustainable international textile industry.

Eurocel® is a European product through and through. The cellulose fibers used are made in Austria in an environmentally responsible process. Eurocel® is based on the idea of offering a high quality European product to consumers.
