Mongolia:Dutch firms support first sustainable tannery

A new initiative has been launched to set up the first sustainable tannery in Mongolia, with the ultimate aim of producing a consumer-facing label to communicate where the leather in their shoes, bags and jackets has come from.
The plans were announced today (19 June) during a congress for the Dutch leather sector. MVO Netherland (CSR Netherlands) will work with a number of Dutch companies including chemical suppliers, brands and retailers to support the tanneries and help sell their products.
Taking part in the venture are chemical company Stahl, which produces leather dyes and coatings;Macintosh Retail Group (operator of the Manfield, Scapino and Dolcis stores); degradable footwear firm OAT Shoes; sustainable bag lable MYOMY; the DNR sustainable leather jackets brand from Donders; and the clothing label Traced Good that's strives for transparency in the chain to support the tanneries and make their production process sustainable.
Stahl has been creating closer ties with the tannery sector in Mongolia since 2013, in a collaboration with the Mongolian government and tanneries. The aim was to make the local production process more sustainable and improve the quality of the leather.
The new sustainable tannery will use technologies and products that are less harmful to the environment. At the same time, employment conditions will be assessed.
The partnership also aims to encourage other tanneries in Mongolia to follow this sustainable example.
