Operating from its base in Svenljunga, Sweden, Elmo has been at the forefront of sustainability in the industry since the 1980s, driving the industry by switching from solvent-based coatings to water-based coatings and excelling in air emission reduction. Elmo has also introduced a fully circular manufacturing process that eliminates all process waste through upcycling, recycling, and energy recovery. This approach has led to the introduction of the pioneering and industry-leading ’Zero Waste Leather’ concept, marking a notable innovation in sustainable production practices. With an ‘Excellent’ rating up to the place(s) of breeding, Elmo also achieved the ICEC certification of traceability back to the farm in 2023. Additionally, it responsibly sources surface water from a nearby river, purifies it through a highly efficient biological plant and returns it to its source in an equal or improved condition. Downstream, a regional cleaning facility further filters the water, supplying cities on the Swedish West Coast with clean drinking water.
