Supporting sustainability in India

Based on the premise Think Global, Act Local, we organize Road Shows around the globe with the objective to introduce local professionals to Stahl’s philosophy. We show them how to strengthen their businesses with our portfolio, while at the same time introducing sustainable solutions. In doing so, we are working towards a better future for both - our planet and the local industries.

In recent Road Shows in Mumbai and New Delhi we served the Indian market. Over one hundred important players in synthetics attended. Globally, India is a potential area for enormous growth in regard to sustainability. The local industry has the opportunity to obtain a leading position for water-based alternatives for high volume DMF-coagulated materials. At Stahl we are actively supporting the supply chain in India to choose a future-oriented approach. For instance, we stimulate existing businesses to transfer from a traditional solvent-based technology to a more sustainable technology by offering mild solvents from Stahl's EVO portfolio as a small step or even to water-based solutions as a bigger step to more sustainability.

Meeting local demands
Therefore, we hosted the hundred plus players from Indian synthetics. Showing what Stahl can do to help, we focused on current local demands. Meeting the existing requirements in a PVC dominated market, we took it one step further by also presenting our global collection and highlighting 100% water-based solutions from adhesive to skin as an alternative for the current Indian technology with an even better performance.

Our Stahl EVO® coatings do not contain any non-hazardous classified substances and offer the best-in-class performance without compromising on quality. So that is best of both worlds, which was a huge eye-opener for most attendees at the Mumbai and New Delhi Road Shows.
As Stahl, by organizing both Road Shows we opened up the possibility for a more sustainable future for the leather industry in India.
