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.
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
PEOPLE – We are making our products less evasive to human health, especially by avoiding hazardous substances wherever possible. This is a big plus for our tannery workers as well as the end-consumer.
PLANET – In our production plants we are running projects for better use of resources, such as water and energy. Furthermore, we are providing solutions for our customers to improve the eco-footprint of their productions.
PROFIT – Our products and applications follow the highest possible technical standards. The idea is to reduce the usage amount of chemicals, generate less waste in production and the achievement of high-quality and long-lasting premium leather and fur articles. This is a benefit for all of us.
Our approach at Pulcra Chemicals 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 and fur articles. We present pulcrACTIONS, a guide for improving the sustainability of processing by making better use of resources and obtaining higher quality leathers and furs.
