PrimeAsia sets a gold standard

Published:  26 August, 2015

Reaccredited with a Leather Working Group Gold rating in March 2015, PrimeAsia’s commitment to employees’ welfare and environmental protection sets the Gold example for the tanning sector.

Under the new Protocol 6.1.1, PrimeAsia China was reaccredited LWG gold last March. It also received the highest traceability rating, grade A, which means over 90% of hides bought by PrimeAsia China are physically marked and traceable to the slaughterhouse. Further, PrimeAsia China purchases 95% of its hides from LWG gold rated beamhouses.

Throughout the year, PrimeAsia organises community service projects in China, Taiwan, Vietnam and the U.S. as part of the company’s corporate commitment to create long-term partnerships with communities, customers, employees, environment and suppliers.

One of these projects consisted in taking teams to participate in local environmental projects such as planting trees on the international Earth Day.

PrimeAsia manufactures leathers for footwear, apparel and leather goods. It employs around 2500 people at manufacturing sites in China and Vietnam, and has global sales and marketing support structures in the U.S., UK and Asia.
