We care about the environment. First of all, our discharge goes through a populated area of the city. Our solid waste is also transported through the city to the municipal disposal site. Secondly, some residents and most of the employees live near the tannery. Thirdly and above all, since environment is public property and everyone has the right to live and work in clean environment, we have great responsibility as a firm and as citizens to be environmentally friendly.
