Fuga Couros had first applied to participate in the CSCB scheme in mid-2015 in order to keep itself up-to-date and to improve its processes. Achieving the certificate means the tannery has focussed on developing activities covering different elements including: sustainability management, economic. environmental and social responsibility. The norms that determine these criteria were accredited by the Brazilian Association of Technical Standards (ABNT) and the auditing processes for the certification was carried out by Brazil’s Inmetro, an independent body which is part of the IAF (International Accreditation Forum) and ILAC (International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation) framework.

Fuga Couros processes more than 200,000 hides per month. The CSCB is supported by the Centre for the Brazilian Tanning Industry (CICB).
