Our Leather Sustainability Initiatives

Inter-Leather works exclusively with tanneries that meet or exceed legislated environmental requirements. This ensures:

  • No hazardous tanning agents are used in the process
  • All finishes are water based
  • All water is monitored and treated with a substantial proportion being reused through the tanneries
  • Any water not reused is discharged in compliance with European environmental¬†requirements
  • All effluents of the tanning process are independently monitored to ensure a two tiered control on discharge.

These tanneries are committed to reducing their carbon footprint and continue to pursue further enhancements to their own sustainability programs.
