At Soubach, we have a true commitment to the environment and to the leather production in a responsible manner. Always respecting the applicable environmental laws and policies.

We seek to continuously monitor developments in the treatment and reuse of natural resources and in order to control our activities, we established goals and environmental indicators regarding the consumption of renewable energy (electricity, firewood and fuels), water consumption, atmospheric emissions and effluent parameters.

Through a periodic survey, Soubach maintains a list of restricted substances, of which we maintain a minimum level of use, precisely to avoid possible impacts to the environment. These include: Chromium IV, heavy metals, PCP, TECP & TCP, azo dyes, Dimetilfumarato (DMFU), Total Lead, among others.

Our substances control policy also has a careful choice of suppliers and raw materials, in addition to the analyses of our leather products in specialized and accredited laboratories, thus certifying our compliance to the use level limits of these substances as provided by law.


LWG CERTIFICATION

Considering the international requirements and the Company's commitment to adopt more sustainable techniques, Soubach became part of the LWG (Leather Working Group) in 2012, and after the reviews was certified in the Silver category.

The LWG (www.leatherworkinggroup.com) is a group of companies whose primary purpose is to develop and maintain a protocol that evaluates the resources capabilities and the environmental performance of tanners, promoting environmental and appropriate practices within the leather industry.. This certification aims to improve the leather industries, creating and aligning environmental priorities and providing visibility to the best practices, in addition to provide guideline suggestions for continuous improvement.
