Sustainability at the core

First published in the Nov/Dec edition of ILM. Gruppo Mastrotto, the industrial group in the global tanning industry which I represent, places sustainability at the core of its business and its future growth. First and foremost, we must carefully manage our water usage; considered an essential resource not only for the environment but also for the tanning sector given its key role in the production process of leather. The rational management of water is critical, which can be implemented through the design of leather articles, the recycling of process water as well as inside the different production departments within the business.
