Our world moves towards greater sensitivity for the well-being of the planet and its inhabitants. This implies an increasing 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 has changed dramatically. Traditionally, it was all about technical craftsman-ship, 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, a leather and fur technician also has to be an expert in sustainable plant management, international and local chemical laws and the various possible hazardous materials which may banned by different labels or organizations.
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 – we are commited to making our products less harmful to human health, e.g., by avoiding very hazardous substances wherever possible. This is a big plus for our customers as well as the end-consumer.
PLANET – in our production plants we are running projects for reducing the use of resources, such as water, energy and less waste creation. Our working personnel is actively suggesting improvements wherever possible.
PROFIT – our products and applications follow the highest possible technical standards. Thus, we can provide a lower usage amount of chemicals, less waste generated in the tannery and the achievement of high-quality and long-lasting premium leather articles. This is a big profit for all of us.
Our approach at Pulcra is the implementation of practical actions in the manufacturing processes of our chemical auxiliaries making the production and products even more environmentally sound, meeting all safety and health requirements and giving high quality leather articles. We want to propose pulcrACTIONS for the application pattern of our products in the tannery, aimed at a making better use of resources and obtaining a higher quality Sustainable Leather.
Thus, you, our valuable customer and we ourselves are together
contributing for making leather sustainable and safe.
