We use all valuable components that our renewable and natural raw material wood has to offer. We process our raw materials in closed production loops wherever possible. At the end of their life cycle, our fibers biodegrade – and nature returns to nature. Sustainability is the key foundation to our corporate values and sCore TEN strategy and we have been recognized for our leadership in sustainable sourcing of wood and our closed loop manufacturing processes.

We are convinced that the RCI will be an important nucleus for greening the textile and nonwovens industry by raising awareness and understanding of renewable carbon amongst our business community. Bringing together partners along the value chain from different industries will help the transformation process to become more sustainable. We share this vision and therefore are pleased to be a partner of RCI and its commitments to act now. Taking a leading role in the transformation from fossil to renewable carbon is just the right thing to do.
