JBS Couros has a strict traceability system that allows the raw material to be monitored from its origin to the delivery of the final product to the customer. This system provides greater control in relation to the sustainable origin of the leathers while offering important information related to product quality. The JBS Couros traceability system is internationally recognized. All of the company's Wet Blue and Wet White plants certified by LWG have a maximum score in this regard.
As JBS Couros believes in the inclusion of sustainability in all its operations, it created a new product: Kind Leather is the result of years of research and dedication to develop an authentically sustainable leather. By combining concepts such as sustainability, clean production and tracking, it established a new product concept that seeks to promote a more transparent production chain, from the farm to the final product. The result is greater efficiency in the use of resources, producing higher quality leather and considerably reducing the volume of water, energy and chemicals used. As part of a monitored production chain with tracking of all its phases, the process also reduces greenhouse gas emissions and waste.
