“We are delighted to partner with Lenzing and provide them with effective solutions to detect and remove online counterfeits at scale. There is an increasing need for brand protection across all industries and having Lenzing on board shows us that consumers are looking for more transparency.” said Sergi Garcia, Chief Marketing Officer of Red Points. “At Red Points, our mission is to make all ecommerce channels –from global social media to NFT marketplaces– a safer place for brands and consumers.”
Brand protection is just one of Lenzing’s ongoing proactive measures aimed at enhancing transparency in the supply chain and protecting the interest of Lenzing’s partners by ensuring they are purchasing genuine Lenzing fibers which meet their high standards.

The platform has been welcomed by partners globally as it continues to deliver value to the fashion, textile and nonwoven sectors by facilitating the traceability of Lenzing’s fibers and enabling customers to promote them effectively.
