Hong Kong
Published:  28 February, 2015

Brands and retailers are facing increasing pressure to commit to policies regarding animal sourcing. This may include animal types, geographical origin, welfare systems and slaughtering practices. A presentation will be given at the upcoming “Sustainability in the Leather Supply Chain” conference in Hong Kong.

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?


The conference will be a valuable opportunity to meet Paul Littlefair and also hear what other leading speakers have to say about other important drivers in the manufacture of sustainable leather.
