S.A.M.A.C. achieve LWG Gold Certification for Sustainable Leather Production

In line with our previous communication, S.A.M.A.C. is firmly committed to sustainable practices. We prioritize environmental stewardship in every aspect of our operations, making it an integral part of our daily activities.

Adhering to the LWG Standard:

To solidify our commitment, we proudly joined the Leather Working Group (LWG) audit standard and achieved the highest possible rating: GOLD.

About the Leather Working Group:

For those unfamiliar, the LWG is a non-profit membership organization established in 2005. Its mission is to drive positive change within the leather supply chain, ensuring responsible and sustainable practices for this valuable material.

Adopted Audit Protocol:

S.A.M.A.C. specifically adheres to the Commissioning Manufacturer Audit Protocol 1.0.2.  launched in 2020.

Aim of the Protocol:

This protocol assesses the environmental impact of an organization that deals with the production of leather also using subcontractors chosen for their excellence in some particular processing phases. The evaluation encompasses the entire production system, including both the commissioning party and subcontractors, using an approach similar to that for traditional leather manufacturers. It considers multiple aspects, including energy consumption and physical and documental traceability throughout the production chain.

Significance of LWG Gold Certification:

For S.A.M.A.C., attaining the LWG Gold certification is a significant milestone. It goes beyond mere recognition and serves as tangible proof of our unwavering commitment to protecting the planet we call home.

A Challenging Yet Rewarding Journey:

We acknowledge that this journey was long and arduous, gradually transforming our own practices and those of our suppliers. However, we are confident that these efforts will become increasingly sustainable as awareness grows within the global leather industry.

Achieving the LWG Gold certification marks a crucial step in our sustainability journey, a commitment we will continue to pursue with dedication and perseverance.
