The first episode of a two-part webinar series titled ‘Preparing for a post-Covid-19 global leather marketplace’, organised by ILM in partnership with global hide and leather supplier JBS Couros and the National Wildlife Federation (NWF), will be broadcast on June 25, 2020 at 2pm UK time (3pm CET). To listen to this free-to-attend webinar, please sign up here (subject to approval), as pre-registrations will close shortly.

The webinar, titled ‘How globally integrated supply chains can evolve to improve leather businesses in a post-Covid-19 world’, features three high-profile speakers who represent different parts of the wider leather supply chain. Topics of discussion include the impact of the coronavirus crisis on supply chains and how they are likely to evolve post pandemic and how internationally operating businesses can respond to these changes.

Moderated by ILM Editor Isabella Griffiths, the webinar will be divided into two elements, a presentation by Kim Sena, Sustainability Manager at JBS Couros on JBS’ Kind Leather concept as an example of a more sustainable approach which aims to minimise the environmental impact of leather production, followed by a panel discussion which tackles the biggest challenges businesses are facing post Covid-19, the importance of sustainability and CSR and effective risk-management strategies. Other panellists include Mauricio Bauer, Senior Corporate Engagement Specialist at the National Wildlife Federation and Andy Pleatman, who is in charge of vision and direction for South China based tannery Asiatan/TecTuff, a manufacturer of leather for global footwear brands.

Who should watch this webinar?
This webinar is aimed at the whole leather supply chain from meat processors and hide/skin/leather traders, to leather manufacturers and leather using brands, retailers and OEMs.
