Podcast: Looking forward, 2023 and beyond

In the first main podcast episode of the year, ILM’s View from the Top series takes a look at some of the major objectives and observations for the leather industry as we leave 2022 behind.


The catastrophe of Higg

Last Autumn over thirty leather industry organisations from around the world agreed to publish a Leather Manifesto, which was sent out shortly before the start of COP-26 held in Glasgow. In the weeks after, a few critical articles were published arguing that the Manifesto had failed to make any impact and animal rights bodies and individuals, not least Stella McCartney, had been able to steal the show. 


Leather can help solve our biggest problems

In his latest comment, Mike Redwood explores the concept that leather has always been a positive influence on society and only continues to become more beneficial over alternatives for the environment.
