In this episode, Tom Hogarth is joined by Stephen Sothmann, President of the Leather and Hide Council of America (LHCA), and Eric Mittenthal, Chief Strategy Officer at the North American Meat Institute (NAMI).

They discuss Steve and Eric’s experiences and perspectives from COP27, which was held in Egypt in November 2022 and how both sectors need to remain engaged to ensure that both industries are represented in the climate change debate.
