There is much discussion and debate in the leather industry about the environmental performance of leather and leather making. With lower energy electric and hybrid vehicles becoming more popular with consumers the leather industry must continue to improve its environmental performance to remain a premium material in automobiles.

The presentation “Environmental Drivers within Automotive Leather Production” will be delivered by Dr Yu Mei, Head of Global R&D and Application Laboratories, BASF at the ILM Automotive Leather Supply Chain Conference in Shanghai on September 2 (afternoon).
