Latest Developments in MRSL Compliance, Supply Chain Traceability and Chemistry in Waste Water to be discussed at Sustainability Conference

Did you know over 1/3 of manufacturers suggest sourcing environmentally compliant chemicals is a priority?

A recent survey reported in Ecotextile suggests that transparency, environmentally preferred chemistry, MRSL awareness and compliance are some of the biggest challenges facing manufacturers and brands.

Find out more by joining us at the Leather & Sustainability in Retail Conference on Thursday 16th November 2017, where our industry leading speakers will discuss Chem-MAP, the latest MRSL compliance and verification system; the importance of transparency and traceability in supply chains; waste water compliance and the potential negative impact of chemistry in waste water and water courses.

Jointly organised by BLC Leather Technology Centre Ltd (BLC) and International Leather Maker (ILM), the conference is sponsored by Stahl, Smit & zoon and TFL, and is supported by Lonza.  

This year’s half-day conference will be held at One Great George Street, London. Places are filling up fast so don't forget to REGISTER NOW!
