Do You Think the Leather Sector is Sustainable?

Innovations in raw materials and sustainability considerations have undoubtedly influenced the leather industry, and changes continue to take place.

At the upcoming Leather & Sustainability in Retail Conference, we will be asking speakers to provide clarity on key questions which affect the future of leather.

VP, Business Development, Modern Meadow

Can bio-fabricated material successfully replace hides and skins from animals? How will Zoa™, a new bio-fabricated material impact on tanners and leather manufacturers?

What innovations are there in new sustainable materials, and what do consumers think of sustainable materials and processes used in manufacturing?

 

 

 

Robert Perkins
Group Managing Director, Hotter

How can supply chain mapping and traceability bring commercial benefits in a complex global industry, and how can supply chain traceability be achieved?

 

 

 

Christina Raab
Implementation Director, ZDHC 

Is responsible chemical management at the forefront of brand and retailer agendas? What are the key challenges that manufacturers of leather and textile products need to face?

 

 

 

Ask the Panel

A panel discussion will also take place, where delegates can ask questions and discuss views on sustainable raw materials, innovations and challenges facing the leather industry as well as the commercial viability of new innovations. Delegates can also ask brands and retailers how they are dealing with this changing landscape.
