At least 30 % less CO2 emissions

terracare® leather generates more than 30 % less CO2 during its production than the industry avarage. Because electricity is produced in-house, purchased from regenerative sources or the accruing CO2 emissions are neutralized by us.

At least 97 % recycling/recovery rate

At least 97 % recycling/recovery rate

terracare® leather makes use of 97% of the by-products generated during the production process. For example, to recycle or reuse them as biogas, compost, small leather parts or gelatine.

At least 40 % less water consumption
