This development means that all of the company’s leather chemicals are now fully ZDHC (Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals) certified, thanks to the Chem-MAP Eurofins: BLC Leather Technology Centre.

In a statement, Pulcra said: “Compliance and continuous improvement of sustainability and safety in the production and use of leather chemicals is of paramount importance to Pulcra Chemicals in its decisions and actions.

“This includes the capability and desire of permanently enhancing product performance by reducing valuable resources such as water and energy that are used in the manufacture of Pulcra leather chemicals. A focus on renewable raw materials and improved chemical use are also part of these efforts.

“Achieving a complete ZDHC certification for Pulcra leather chemicals is an important recognition of Pulcra’s commitment to excellence in sustainability and product safety. Pulcra firmly believes in a successful future of leather as a highly sustainable natural material with a long tradition of craftsmanship and beauty.”
