Eurofins | BLC work with Bhartiya International Ltd to focus on Sustainable Manufacturing

Congratulations to Bhartiya who have implemented their SupplierSure project. This project which was uniquely developed for Bhartiya gives third party verification to a range of positive activities that the company has been working on. The company which is already rated Gold and Silver by the Leather Working Group has built on this solid environmental foundation to further develop on its concept of “a good company that wants to do better”.

A.V.Kishore COO & Head of Leather Division Bhartiya International Ltd said “we worked with Eurofins BLC on this project using their insight into the needs and direction of the market and came up with an augmentation plan for the business. We had already begun the development process but wanted reassurance that we were on the right track and of course third-party validation of our activities”.

Working with Eurofins BLC, Bhartiya were able to validate their activities so that they can create authentic messaging. The validations included reviews of their social auditing process, the management of mould, policies on animal welfare and deforestation, the traceability of material, and the governance processes etc. These are all in addition to the in-depth assessment that is the Leather Working Group audit which covers operating permits, water and energy metrics and targets, liquid and solid waste discharges, RSL, MRSL and Chrome VI management, health and safety, VOC emissions, environmental management systems and more.

One of the big projects Bhartiya worked on as part of this project was better transparency of their supply chain and clearer traceability of raw material origins. Bhartiya chose to work with Eurofins BLC to geo reference and map their complete upstream supply chain using our specialised mapping process and software. This on-going project has enabled them to ensure that their raw material sources are not driving deforestation and facilitates dialogue with in-direct suppliers further up the supply chain on topics such as animal welfare, deforestation, and social governance. Our view is that you must have good transparency of the supply chain to be able to manage potential sensitivities within it.

The Bhartiya SupplierSure programme also focussed us on other important projects such as the biodegradability and disintegration characteristics of the different leather as well as starting discussions on other topics such as carbon footprint and life cycle analysis.
