A growing number of consumers expect suppliers to have an open dialogue on what it means to buy better within the industry. The Academy will explore different issues and topics in a series of courses open to the leather and fashion supply chain from downstream to upstream. 

The courses are divided into different subjects. The scope includes:

- Animal Welfare and Husbandry 
- Leather Basics   
- Manufacturing
- Leather Purchasing
- Leather Basics   
- Sales and Marketing       

Best-in-class tanners and experts are invited over the past digital events to share their journey and the benefits of adopting sustainable practices. The community can learn the process and outcome of practising safe and sustainable standards by replaying the webinars <here>.
