Sustainability in the Supply Chain online training course focuses on the key aspects of leather and sustainability, providing delegates with expert tuition. Leather and materials sustainability is a complex issue and one that covers a range of topics such as animal welfare, deforestation, and exotic materials. An up to date understanding of these issues can help those who work in the leather industry, or sell leather articles, to manage risk and make informed business decisions.


Key course topics

  • Overview of the leather industry. To understand leather sustainability, it is important to understand an industry that is known for its complex and international nature.
  • Raw materials challenges. Leather sustainability is inherently related to the sourcing of raw hides and skins, and it is important that organisations understand the key sustainability challenges associated with raw materials, and how such practices can be avoided.
  • Inputs and outputs, the leather making process. The leather making process involves the usage of chemicals and resources (e.g. energy and water) that have potentially significant impacts on the environment and people. Understanding these impacts is important for the implementation of sustainable business practices for those organisations operating in the leather industry.
  • Environmental Impacts and the Leather Working Group. The Leather Working Group is the leather industry’s leading organisation with regards to environmental stewardship, and engagement offers a clear avenue by which all organisations involved in the industry can implement best practice.
  • Chemicals and Restricted Substances. Delegates will learn about the need for chemical management within the leather industry and will explore how this relates to restricted substances.
  • Market drivers and Sustainability Risks. Leather sustainability covers a broad range of specific issues and delegates will learn about leather sustainability risks and their drivers.
  • Waste and End-of-Life. Delegates will learn about the importance of waste and end-of-life considerations to leather sustainability.
