LINEAPELLE 101, this year, has done more comprehensive and good works in the field of sustainability. Gruppo Mastrotto, one of the important names in the tanning industry, said: “Travel means deciding on a destination, discovering new horizons, facing new challenges. Traveling is also sharing: when you travel in a group, you grow together in a way of mutual stimulation that allows for continuous improvement. The company’s President, Chiara Mastrotto, similarly says, the commitment to a more sustainable future for Gruppo Mastrotto is a journey to be shared with our partners, customers, suppliers and collaborators, the Sustainability Journey. But to travel, a passport is required, a document that reminds us, through its stamps, of the length of the journey from where we started, and that we will encounter new destinations,” he said.
Gruppo Mastrotto Express’s 1st and 2nd supplier of ready-to-deliver leather with more than 40 collections and 1,500 colors, and environmental product certificates that provide official third-party recognition of the ways and actions taken in terms of sustainability. Also, one stage of this journey is the patent activity, which created the innovative material “REVIVA”, dedicated to the world of fashion. able to reuse finished leather scraps and thus complete the circularity of the tanning cycle-specific by-product development process. Another important step is structured corporate well-being and social sustainability, which takes the form of a social and business inclusion project. The passport also represents an invitation to the entire fashion chain and our stakeholders to join us on this journey towards sustainability, with the belief that only serious and joint commitment of the entire supply chain can ensure sustainable development for future generations.
