During his presentation, John Graebin will outline the business case for building a transparent supply chain and present practical steps on how to systematically track the source of all animal hides to their origins.

Webinar attendees will have a better understanding on why transparency is becoming so crucial for business and is especially important for leather made products. He will also outline what can be done today to create a platform for tracing the animal hides used in final consumer products.
