In recent years, Coronet implemented a facility dedicated to solvent recovery, with a 99% yield.
Coronet has installed a 1,177.00 kWp photovoltaic system whose environmental efficiency is equal to 1,388,781 kWh of green energy per year.

The products of the BioVeg family represent how the market for alternative materials is much more sustainable compared to natural leather. PETA approved and cruelty-free , they differ from fossil fuel alternatives for their bio content, derived from plant-based resources. This result was achieved through the use of bio-polyols originating from no-food and GMO-freegrains combined with textiles sourced from natural or recycled materials. The use of certified raw materials guarantees their composition: FSC certified viscose or post-consumer chain recycled polyester that is GRS certified.

The Global Recycle Standard (GRS) certifies that the recycled polyester of the fabric originates from Post-Consumer recoveries. The GRS recognises the importance of recycling for the growth of a sustainable production and consumption model, to encourage the reduction of resource consumption and increase the quality of recycled products.
The articles within the BioVeg family are certified with the BioPreferred Program of the United States Department of Agriculture, which testifies a bio percentage higher than 25% by weight. Measurements made by the University of Georgia’s laboratory have shown that some of our articles can exceed 80% of organic content (according to ISO 16620-4).
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certifies the correct forest management and the traceability of the viscose used in our Veg, BioVeg, and H2O products. It guarantees that the product has been made with raw materials deriving from forests according to its principal standards: ethical forest management and custody chain GRS.
The comparison of impacts resulting from the production of one metre of material from the BioVeg family compared to tanned leather (collecting the standard impacts from public libraries) showed lower environmental impacts. In particular for the Climate Change category (Global Warming in ILCD 2018), acidification of aquatic environments, eutrophication and the use of natural resources. It is clear that the supply of raw materials, which originates from animal breeding, is one of the main sources of significant negative environmental performance. Finally, the tanning process is strongly linked to the use of chemicals.
Every day, more and more people are approaching a healthy, but above all ethical lifestyle. The fashion industry cannot be exempt from this innovative and eco-sustainable process. An alternative choice is possible. Coronet has been very farsighted. Intensive farming, high production of CO2, and global warming are important issues, but it is not enough to talk about it. In this case, practical actions make the difference and we, on our side, are making our contribution by saving energy in respect for animals, of water and air while not renouncing to produce.
