We collaborate with several prestigious Italian and international associations to develop and promote initiatives in the tanning sector.
UNPAC (Italian Auxiliary Tanning Producers National Union) is an association that groups producers of chemical products for leather manufacturers. Founded in 2009, it offers support to meet the requirements of a constantly evolving industry, providing solutions focused on company sustainability.
Leather Naturally is a not-for-profit industry members association that focuses on education and the promotion of leather. It promotes the use of globally manufactured sustainable leather and seek to inspire and inform designers, creators, and consumers about its beauty, quality and versatility.
Carbon Footprint Italy
Carbon Footprint Italy is the Italian program dedicated to communicate the results of the quantification of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of products and organizations, and their reduction. GSC Group became in 2020 the first Italian company within the chemical specialties for leather industry to participate in this initiative.
Many of our experts and technicians are members of AICC (Leather Chemists Italian Association), a chemical association born in 1904 that serves as worldwide reference point in the leather industry. With headquarters in the principal tanning districts in Italy, it helps the dispersion of BAT (Best Available Techniques) and know-how of tannery skills between Italian leather chemists, arising collaborations of distinct companies.
