About

Manmade cellulosic materials like viscose, modal, and lyocell have the potential to be climate-friendly. The MMCF Round Table exists to advance more sustainable options, such as those that are made from recycled sources or grown using regenerative production practices. Our aim is to ensure this material category contributes to our Climate+ goals of bringing beneficial outcomes for climate, soil health, water, and biodiversity.

Goals

We’re making sure the MMCF value chain respects the lands and hands that sustain it.

  • Regeneration Harnessing the potential of MMCFs to restore natural ecosystems, making use of regenerative practices
  • Zero Emmisions Finding ways to manage chemicals and other inputs, creating closed loop production systems with zero emissions
  • Rethink Growth Encouraging the industry to rethink growth, incentivizing circular value chains and zero waste practices
  • Equity Protecting the rights of individuals, Indigenous Peoples, and other communities along the MMCF value chain, incorporating equitable economic and social benefit

SCOPE

Our focus extends from feedstock to fiber.

The MMCF Round Table focuses on fibers including viscose rayon, modal, lyocell, acetate, triacetate, and cupro. We cover the start of the supply chain, from producing feedstocks to processing them into fibers.
