SUSTAINABILITYWelcome to the Saga Furs' Corporate Social Responsibility section. Through our operations and activities across the value chain, we’ve always put a high priority on sustainability. As the company expands internationally, regulations tighten, and stakeholder expectations increase, we have resolved to take a more systematic approach to managing our responsibilities.One of the first actions has been to prioritise those areas in which we have the most impact. These include farm certification, product traceability, animal welfare, and increased transparency.Saga Furs is known for auctioning the best quality fur by the use of only the best practices for fur breeding by following specific animal welfare guidelines. These are all included in the Saga Certification which outstands international laws, regulations and industry codes of practice that tightly regulate the fur trade. These ethical policies address everything from animal welfare to environmental impact.
Saga Furs is the only fur seller in the industry with a supplier certification and auditing programme on the environment and animal health and welfare. We are the industry leader in certification, and the Saga Certification has been used since 2005.
In addition to certification, traceability in the production chain is increasingly important. Saga Furs has created a pelt traceability programme, which enables the manufacturers to trace the origin of the pelt lots down to individual farms.
