Following the More Sustainable Chemistry along the Leather Supply Chains project, which concluded in 2022, representatives from the university and the leather industry have released the guiding principles document.

According to the university, this new document provides the industry with concrete criteria for scrutinising their own processes and products and, if necessary, developing them further.

The full document, Guiding Principles – More Sustainable Leather Chemistry, can be found on the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences website.
