Ethical claim “we recover our skins from the food chain”

Talk at Lineapelle

The ethical "claim", promoted by UNIC and verified in the tannery by ICEC through traceability, was created with the aim of allowing tanneries to communicate with a good, clear and simple phrase that the raw hides used in their process have been recovered from food supply chain. Through this tool, interested operators can promote some essential aspects of tanning sustainability to customers, consumers and public opinion: the circularity of the leather raw material and the consequent enhancement of a by-product, which, in the absence of tanning, would be reduced to waste.
