5 sustainable elements.
5 central goals in 5 years.

No to emissions

CO2-neutral leather

In 2016, Wollsdorf became the first CO2-neutral tannery in Austria, and our CO2-neutral leather has been available to customers worldwide as of 2021. Since 2012 we are exclusively relying on electricity from renewable sources. In the future, we are planning to gradually reduce our use of natural gas and transition to energy from renewable resources.

No to waste water

Natural water cycle and waste water treatment

No water is wasted. At the Wollsdorf site, all waste water is treated and purified in an elaborate process and introduced back into the natural water cycle. We are reducing our water use through process optimisations and recycling and aim to achieve a reduction to 70% by 2025. (Basis: as of 2015)

No to oil-based chemicals

Advancing the use of clean renewable resources

Wollsdorf is working on a new sustainable project with its suppliers. Chemicals that are partially based on renewable resources are increasingly being used in the production process. Currently the share of renewable resources is 20%, which is to be increased to 50% by 2025.

No to waste

Recycling, upcycling or thermal utilisation, no waste disposal

Wollsdorf does not dispose of any waste. Waste materials are recycled, thermally utilised, harnessed for energy recovery or upcycled. We aim to further reduce our waste amounts through research projects conducted together with our partners in the area of biodegradability as well as through new technologies and process modifications.

Yes to coexisting with all living beings

Wollsdorf social standards

For Wollsdorf, maintaining minimum standards is a matter of course. Wollsdorf standards even go beyond minimum requirements and apply to all our employees and suppliers at all sites. This also concerns our support of regional social projects or our deforestation-free sourcing to protect the rainforest. Projects such as the Wollsdorf Academy, the promotion of compatibility of family and career as well as issues related to animal welfare are ongoing.
