LENZING, Austria — April 13, 2021 — Lenzing is launching a nonwoven industry premiere with the introduction of E-branding service for certification and licensing service to the VEOCEL™ brand in an industry first move to elevate supply chain transparency for nonwoven fibers. The Lenzing E-Branding Service provides the VEOCEL brand’s expanding network of partners with a platform designed to increase the value of products by showcasing the use of sustainable, high-quality and ethically sourced materials.
Designed from the ground up to make the VEOCEL certification process simple, the Lenzing E-Branding Service creates peace of mind for all VEOCEL brand partners, allowing producers, retailers and brand owners from hygiene, beauty and home care products, to certify their use of VEOCEL branded fibers and develop co-branding campaigns that improve the value of their products.
Lenzing E-Branding Service elevates VEOCEL™’s industry-leading reputation
First launched in 2018 for the textile industry, the Lenzing E-Branding Service unifies registration, application and approval in a state-of-the-art online system designed to eliminate the use of paper and reduce response times, with the aim to enhance efficiency by digitizing workflow. The system’s early success and positive feedback made the expansion to the VEOCEL brand a natural next step for the industry-leading platform.
As a digital hub for VEOCEL brand partners, the platform includes features to apply for new licenses, monitor application status, and manage existing licenses. Simultaneously, the platform will act as a support portal, showcasing the latest branding guidelines and support for VEOCEL brand certified products.
“We are excited to expand our industry-leading Lenzing E-Branding Service to VEOCEL brand customers and partners. The expansion showcases Lenzing’s unwavering commitment to sustainability for nonwoven applications, accelerates the digitalization of the industry and sets new standards for driving greater transparency,” said Jürgen Eizinger, vice president of Global Nonwovens Business, Lenzing AG.
The VEOCEL™ brand continues to push for greater sustainability boundaries
The expansion of the Lenzing E-Branding Service comes nearly two years after the VEOCEL brand introduced its pioneering certification requirements mandating nonwoven products use 100-percent cellulosic and biodegradable materials before qualifying to feature the VEOCEL brand logo. Alongside the industry-first requirements, the Lenzing E-Branding Service creates an unparalleled guarantee for consumers that products featuring the VEOCEL brand logo are genuinely sourced and produced.
“The VEOCEL brand is rapidly becoming an industry-leading credential for hygiene and personal care brands and end-users who are serious about increasing their environmental responsibility. The new E-branding Service will truly complement our VEOCEL certification criteria to ensure trustworthy supply chain transparency for our partners, customers and end-users,” Eizinger added.
“We have observed an overwhelmingly positive shift in consumer preferences as they seek greater sustainability from the nonwoven brands they trust. During this exciting time of transition toward the greater use of environmentally responsible materials, we are thrilled to provide our brand partners and end-users with the peace of mind that products containing VEOCEL™ branded fibers help to better protect the environment and safeguard the future of our planet,” says Harold Weghorst, vice president of Global Marketing & Branding, Lenzing AG.
