ECCO Leather, one of the world's leading shoe brands, has opened an advanced high-tech leather cutting plant next to its tannery in Xiamen, China. It is destined to be a centre for leather cutting excellence of the ECCO Leather Group. The new plant is amongst the most advanced cutting plants in the world, also in terms of environmental footprint.

The tannery in Xiamen was established in 2008, the cutting activity started in 2014.

Factory design, cutting systems, and machinery have been chosen to ensure minimum usage of energy but maximising the utilisation of leather material.

In continuation of ECCO Leather's longstanding efforts to minimise the environmental impact, the new plant has been equipped with highly efficient rooftop photovoltaic solar panels, providing renewable energy, which not only meets the demand of its most important customer that the factory must be energy-neutral; the cutting plant, having covered its own energy needs, exports surplus energy to the ECCO Tannery. It is therefore a net energy producer.

ECCO Leather runs several programmes to reduce water and energy consumption as well as waste to minimise the impact of its activities on the environment. Once these developments have been tested successfully, they will be rolled out to all the Group's units.
