UN Global Goals

 

The UN Global Goals on Sustainable Development, known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), were adopted by all United Nations Member States as a universal call to action to protect the planet, end poverty and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. The SDGs are designed to be “a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.”

Given the growing importance of sustainable practices and increase in demand for transparency from customers, we are keen on sharing what makes our leather a high quality, sustainable material. How we only partner with leather producers whose sustainable practices comply with the stringent requirements set forth by the European Union, which applies to both our European producers as well as our producers who sell to companies in Europe. From their responsible management of water and energy consumption to minimising waste and any use of chemicals to ensuring the wellbeing of staff and more. Including numerous internal measures that we have introduced in our warehouse and our own organisation that reflect our commitment to sustainability.

As a company at the forefront of our industry, in tune with market trends and responsive to the needs of customers, we have formulated our own Sustainability Statements, based on Priority Areas that we find most relevant to the lifecycle of leather.

 

  1. Raw Material
  2. Production
  3. Certifications
  4. Internal Measures
  5. Durability

 

Our Sustainability Statements reflect our ongoing efforts as an eco-conscious company to help protect the planet. Our five Priority Areas are key focal points that represent the lifecycle of leather, from the raw material to the upcycled finished product. Highlighting what makes leather a sustainable material, the importance we put on sustainability with our leather producers, our own role ensuring incomparable high quality, how our eco initiatives contribute to a circular economy and much more.

Each Sustainable Statement includes how our actions support the UNGG/SDGs that pertain to our business most. Reflected in our own goal for each Priority Area.
