To remain competitive, the Indian government identified sustainability as a key priority for the leather industry. Stahl wholeheartedly supports the Indian government in this. As market leader, we strongly believe in taking responsibility. We have the innovation power and expertise to support the Indian tanneries in making their production processes more sustainable and responsible. Therefore, we are pleased that the CSIR-CLRI choose us as partner.
The major identified areas are:
- Joint R&D in Bioprocessing
- Resource Conservation Technology
- Other activities will be identified jointly from time to time for the benefit of the leather sector
A number of tanneries have already been identified to work with on these activities. This number will be expanded over time. “Ultimately, we hope this stimulates the entire Leather Sector to be associated with CSIR-CLRI to ensure Indian leather industry remains competitive worldwide”, Dr. A. B. Mandal, Director of CSIR-CLRI explains.
