Zeology has been certified ZDHC Level 3

Earlier this year Zeology has been awarded Level 3 conformance to the ZDHC MRSL. A great accomplishment and a recognition that Zeology truly is the new standard in tanning, entirely certified as ZDHC MRSL Level 3 compliant.

Nera strongly believes in the ZDHC aligned guidelines and tools as driving force for the implementation of the ZDHC environmental goals in the Fashion Industry, and therefore decided to achieve the higher ZDHC Gateway compliance, the level 3 Certificate, for the entire Zeology product range, showing the commitment to the ZDHC Programme and fulfilling the environmental sustainability brand requirements.

About ZDHC

The ZDHC Roadmap to Zero Programme is a collaborative initiative of fashion brands, chemical suppliers, manufacturers and laboratories working to reduce the chemical footprint of apparel, footwear and leather-goods.

An important tool for brands, material- & chemicals suppliers

The ZDHC MRSL conformance process offers brands, material and chemicals suppliers, a tool of recognised and accepted options to provide conformance certificates to the ZDHC MRSL. The higher the conformance level, the more confidence there is that the chemical formulation will consistently meet and conform to the ZDHC MRSL. Level 3 is the highest level to be obtained.

About Zeology

The first tanning solution Nera introduces, is Zeology, the new standard in leather tanning. It is chrome-free, heavy metal-free, aldehyde-free and easy to implement. Yet, it offers unrivalled leather performance. It offers the best of both worlds: the environmental benefits of a sustainable alternative to chrome and glutardialdehyde (GDA) tanning plus a reliable, consistent, superior quality of the tanned material.

Thanks to this combination, Nera is confident that this sustainable tanning concept offers significant benefits for all: for the environment, for tanneries, for OEM’s and brands and, eventually, for the consumer. Zeology truly is the new standard in tanning, entirely certified as ZDHC MRSL Level 3 compliant.
