In the context of the bid presented by the manifesto to gain recognition of leather and other natural materials as contributing to reducing the climate impact of consumer products, the web portal, texfash, has consulted with stakeholders of the leather sector and published their comments in a review of the challenges facing the leather sector.

The four articles published are:

  • Leather Industry Must Work Out its Own Context for Net-Zero and Chart a Plan
  • Leather Industry can Veritably be Part of the Climate Solution
  • Industry Needs to Find More Efficient, Less Resource Heavy Ways of Producing Leather
  • Clear Labelling of Leather and Alternative Materials Critical to Make Informed Choice
