Sustainability

Being an international reference point in the tanning industry involves great responsibilities towards customers, towards our own employees and towards our land as well. Since 1946 our tannery has invested energies and resources to implement technical solutions able to reduce more and more the environmental impact of the rawhide processing.

Our commitment towards health and environment

Safety and health at work have always been one of our key-concerns. This is why we constantly renovated our facilities, always purchasing the cutting-edge machinery to create an air-conditioned and healthy environment for all our employees. Pollution is a significant problem, therefore it is important to strictly comply with the exhaust parameters. Manufacturing vegetable leather helps protecting both Nature and the environment, as the tanning substances used are natural (plant extracts), and the fatliquoring oils and animal greases (tallow extracted from animals or fish) are easier to be purified and allow us to create eco-friendly leathers. The wastewater purification of the tannery is connected to the Consorzio di Depurazione di Santa Croce sull’Arno, one of the largest and most efficient in Europe.
