What Compliances Do We Follow?

In the business world compliance stands for the process of making sure a company and employees follow all laws, regulations, standards, and ethical practices applicable to that organization and industry whether it be in relation to both internal policies and procedures, or federal and state laws. This helps company’s prevent and detect violations of rules, which can protect an organization from fines and lawsuits and deliver ethically and legally sourced quality products to consumers free of waste, fraud, abuse, discrimination, and other practices that disrupt operations and put a company or its client at risk.
Nova leather’s not only aims to follow every regulation applicable on their organization but also aims to set a new standard in the leather industry. Proof of which can be seen in our ecofriendly and quality controlled process that aim to produce the highest quality of ethically sourced leather. Nova uses a vegetable tanning facility that produces Vegetable-tanned leather, this is made using a special process that harnesses the power of natural tannins found in organic materials to add a unique look and feel to the hide. Moreover, Nova leather uses gas generators to fully serve their ECO friendly initiative with heat exchangers installed for water heating from the heat of the generators. Currently Nova Leathers is aiming to transition into using solar power in order to further reduce our carbon footprint. Not only that but we here at Nova ensure that all water used is treated before released as to prevent any water pollution.
