"Quality, innovation and commitment - are some of the factors that moves the CBC Couros
to show up as a positive solution to customers and suppliers."
"Guarantee the quality of our products and satisfaction of our customers! CBC uses responsible and environmentally friendly processes that comply with statutory requirements. We are continuously seeking to improve the use of natural resources; promoting awareness and preservation of the environment." For the management of our environmental policy, environmental indicators regarding energy consumption (electricity, wood and fossil fuels), water consumption, atmospheric emissions and effluent parameters have been set. Environmental audits are periodically performed and after the indicators are evaluated, improvement actions are defined.
Through periodical research conducted at its customers, CBC Couros has prepared and keeps a fully updated list of Restricted Substances that establish maximum levels for Chromium IV, Heavy Metals, PCP, TECP & TCP, Azo Dyes, Dimethylfumarate (DMFU), Total Lead and others. Our leather is periodically analyzed at selected and internationally certified laboratories, which ensure compliance with set restricted substance levels. Our policy for restricted substances is extended to our suppliers by requiring that the relevant certificate/affidavit be issued by them.
CBC Couros applies a traceability system to its leathers using a procedure that defines all the necessary controls (origin documentation and production follow-up, marking each skin with a specific code, computerized system records, batch identification and others). These controls make possible to trace each skin processed at the tannery back to its very origin.
