Projected towards a green future

For over 50 years Coronet has been producing technical materials for the footwear, leather goods, furniture and automotive sectors. The concept of eco-sustainability is pervasive in every aspect of the production process: from product development to the organizational aspects in regards to production and internal procedures, intending to obtain the maximum positive impact on society and the environment.

  • BioVeg

    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.

    Did you know?

    The Veg family is a line of sustainable products that provide the finishing with Bio polyurethane and a moderate content from renewable sources equal to 30%. Up to 1200 bottles can be used to make 100 mtl of our Prm Bioveg.

  • H2O
    The products of the family have a production cycle that excludes the use of solvents that may be harmful to the working environment, to the worker and, in the case of uncontrolled emissions, to the surrounding environment. Unfortunately, we cannot say that the articles of the H2O family are 100% solvent-free, while remaining on extremely low values, because traces of solvents remain detectable. The H2O line is produced with traditional MP and therefore derived from oil sources with the only difference that they are diluted during their production with water instead of solvents.

    Did you know?

    The use of H2O products is considered sustainable because they reduce environmental impact by avoiding or reducing emissions to the atmosphere and the working environment.

    The The perfect combination of technical performance and cutting-edge aesthetics

    The new BioVeg line, the result of 3 years of research and development, represents the eco-sustainable embodiment of this concept. The production technology specifically developed for these products uses organic raw materials that reduce and limit the environmental impact compared to traditional raw materials. (1mq of BioVeg saves 1Kg equivalent of CO2 emissions). The product life cycle analysis (LCA) demonstrates how the BioVeg line is more sustainable in the following categories: health, quality of the environment, use of natural resources, impact on climate change and global warming.

    Life Cycle Assessment

    The LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) study analyzes through a life cycle analysis according to ISO 14040 and ISO 14044 standards, materials composed of bio-plastic compounds produced from renewable resources (biobased).

    The study analyzes the impacts of raw materials, production and transports with a “from cradle to gate” approach (i.e., spanning the entire production process excluding the use-phase and the end-of-use scenario).

    Global Recycle Standard

    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.

    USDA

    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).

    FSC

    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.

    A comparison with leather

    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.

      Towards the future of a sustainable market

      Towards the future of a sustainable market

      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.
