Brands and retailers are facing increasing pressure to commit to policies regarding animal product sourcing and related welfare issues. This may include animal husbandry and farming practices, geographical origin, and slaughtering practices.

Paul Littlefair, Head of International, RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) will be presenting topical discussion around these subjects at the Leather & Sustainability in Retail  Conference to be held in central London; Wednesday December 9, 2015. 

The presentation will include:-

  • Trends in the development of animal welfare standards globally
  • The Animal Protection Index as a tool to measure progress in policy, standards and legislation
  • Animal welfare trends in China
  • The rise in consumer awareness: Where does leather come from? How was it produced? What does the label mean?
