TENCEL™ Celebrates 30 Years And Forges Ahead To Drive A Truly Carbon Zero Textile Future

LENZING, Austria — May 3, 2022 — The year 2022 marks the 30th year of the TENCEL™ brand’s commitment to drive the fashion and textile communities’ sustainability journeys. The milestone reflects Tencel’s commitment to answering the industry’s green demands by providing sustainability-driven innovations, reinvigorating generations of wood-based cellulosic fibers and forging the way towards a “true carbon zero” future.

This year, Tencel will be unveiling a series of new initiatives globally as part of the “Feel Good Fibers Since 1992” campaign. The campaign will not only celebrate three decades of achievements, but also outline plans for the coming years to set a higher industry standard for sustainability and reduce the impact of textile production and waste on the environment.

A key priority for the textile supply chain remains achieving total transparency which Lenzing supports through digitization. The Tencel brand will be adding new features to its proprietary Lenzing E-Branding Service to deliver a more accessible and streamlined experience for brand partners. Additionally, Tencel will continue expanding forest-to-fabric offerings through the recent opening of a state-of-the-art production facility in Thailand — the world’s biggest lyocell plant.

With the industry’s dedication to becoming environmentally responsible, the Tencel brand hopes to continue the positive momentum throughout 2022 and beyond to introduce new sustainability-driven innovations to create a long-lasting impact and carbon-zero future.
