The goal of the group will be to provide feedback on and peer review its Guideline for assessing the environmental footprint of leather.

UNIDO recently appointed Spin360 to establish harmonised guidelines for LCAs, including the creation of a corporate carbon footprint tool.

The organisation said that the guideline will take into consideration both technical performance and durability as important factors to assess environmental footprint of leather products.
