VANCOUVER – An independent audit of how Chinese viscose fibre supplier Zhejiang Fulida sources its raw materials, has found that although there’s a risk it may be sourced from nearby ancient or endangered forests, the company is becoming much more transparent.

The CanopyStyle audit of Zhejiang Fulida noted incomplete information on the forest origins of the wood pulp it purchases, yet the company was applauded for proactively asking its suppliers where this wood pulp originated.

Nicole Rycroft, executive director of the not-for-profit organisation, said “Canopy welcomes the efforts made by Fulida to contribute to ending the use of endangered forests in fabrics … We look forward to a time when their supply chain is verified free from ancient and endangered forests.”

The NGO says that 55 per cent of the entire global supply of viscose now has publicly available CanopyStyle audit results.
