We make sustainable choices to improve processes and respect the environment

For us, growth should be constantly pursued in tandem with sustainable development.

Year after year we meet this challenge with specific choices, such as using energy from renewable sources, recycling waste and packaging and reducing water consumption.

Certified companies must have an appropriate management system to keep the environmental impacts of their activities under control and systematically seek to improve them in a consistent, effective and sustainable manner.

The company uses 100% certified Green Energy from renewable energy generation plants. 1 KWh of Green Energy = 546.37 g of CO2 saved (compared to using the same amount of fossil energy)

The company has given recycled wood to the company Gruppo Mauro Saviola, helping to save trees and reduce CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.


  • Research and innovation

We invest in digitalisation to combine efficiency and respect for the environment

Gruppo concerie Masini - Sustainability

Investments in digitalization, and in the search for new technological solutions, accompany the Masini Concerie Group towards the implementation of better production efficiency.

The main objective remains the reduction of the consumption of energy and water resources. For example, we have chosen sustainable packaging to ensure that the leathers are shipped and protected with FSC-certified recycled paper packaging.


  • The eco-sustainable practices of the group

We make sustainable choices to improve processes and respect the environment

For us, growth should be constantly pursued in tandem with sustainable development.

We have taken concrete actions to increase the competitiveness of our companies from an eco-sustainable point of view; these actions include environmentally conscious management, assessment of environmental, economic and social aspects, continuous efforts to reduce the environmental impact within the supply chain, and regular monitoring of performance. All of these are necessary and responsible choices.

We use 100% renewable energy and give a new life to waste and packaging

What are some of our sustainable behaviours? Production is based on the use of 100% energy from renewable sources; we also manage waste correctly and responsibly through the introduction of a separate waste collection system in the departments.

We recover leather processing waste for use in the production of fertilisers, and we also recover wooden packaging.

We reduce water consumption and manage chemicals consciously

By analysing our production processes, we are able to optimise certain aspects, as well as reduce the quantities of water and chemicals used.

By introducing an innovative processing methodology, we are able to save 1,300 litres of water per 1,000 kg of raw hide and 15% of sodium sulphide compared to standard processing. We also adopted a rational management of chemicals in order to eliminate or minimise risks and the likelihood of accidents or damage to the environment, property and people.

We carefully test chemicals to minimise risks

In the production of the leathers, we use substances that comply with the MRSL ZDHC. For vegetable tanning/re-tanning, we use natural tannins with FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and PEFC (Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes) certification.

We are committed to introducing sustainable practices both inside and outside the company

We promote staff awareness and training initiatives to promote the importance of health and safety standards.

We involve all employees in the implementation of the corporate environmental policy and value specific skills, which are a key resource for the development of the organisation.
