Three high-profile presenters will cover a wide range of topics around material sourcing and what tanners can do to better meet brands’ expectations and needs, from sustainability and end-of-life considerations to traceability and the appeal of leather as a natural, long-lasting material. This webinar is aimed at the whole leather supply chain from meat processors and traders to leather manufacturers and especially leather using brands, retailers and OEMs.

Webinar speaker programme:

· Dr Dominik Kinschel, Product Manager, Standard 100 and Leather Standard, Oeko-Tex, “Why transparency in the leather supply chain matters and how to achieve it”.

· Rodrigo Henriquez, Management Board, Leather Naturally, “The Beauty, Versatility and Sustainability of Leather”.

· Nina Conrad, Co-Founder and Sustainability Manager, Leit & Held, “Traceability in the leather industry – from cow to product”.

The event will be hosted and moderated by ILM Editor Isabella Griffiths and the presentations will be followed by a brief Q&A session.
