SUSTAINABLE LEATHER ?
Our world moves towards greater sensitivity for the well-being of the planet and its inhabitants. This implies a real interest in environmental, health and safety issues related to chemical products and other manufactured goods as well as industrial processing.
The working area of the leather and fur technician in the 21st century tannery technician has changed dramatically. Traditionally, it was all about technical craftsmanship, profound expertise on the quality of raw material, the best possible processing for achieving high quality leather articles and the knowledge of all technical leather requirements. This by itself was a big challenge. In our times, topics such as sustainable plant management, international and local chemical laws and the various possible hazardous materials which may banned by different lables or organisations are given additional focus.
A milestone towards climate neutrality in leather chemicals is the initiative Pulcra Naturalis®. This new portfolio focuses on the use of renewable carbon sources and the reduction of GHG emissions in the production of leather chemicals. Using Pulcra Naturalis® products, the carbon footprint of natural leather is further improved.
At Pulcra Chemicals, we commit ourselves to sustainability, taking it as the central pillar of our management decisions. Sustainability we understand as a cross-section of three important principles: PEOPLE – PLANET – PROFIT
