The CanopyStyle initiative brings together fashion's most progressive players and industry giants to protect the world's forests while scaling up the use of next generation alternatives.
The fashion industry has increasingly relied on forests to create natural wood-based fabrics such as viscose, modal and lyocell. According to Canopy – an independent environmental organisation working to protect the world's Ancient and Endangered Forests – over 200 million trees are logged every year and turned into cellulosic fabric, endangering the world's forests, biodiversity and climate.
As such, Canopy launched the CanopyStyle initiative to rally support from the industry's biggest players to end the sourcing of viscose fiber from the world's Ancient and Endangered Forests.
Preferred by Nature is approved by Canopy as an auditing body to carry out CanopyStyle verification audits. Over thirty viscose audits have been conducted against the CanopyStyle criteria and Preferred by Nature has provided audits for the majority of such companies.
If you are a man-made cellulosic fibre producer and have a policy in place with Canopy get in touch with us to learn more and get started on your verification journey.
