Environment - Leather’s carbon footprint finally authenticated

One 4 Leather writes on LinkedIn that the recent narrative that leather, due to its high carbon footprint, is detrimental to the environment is about to be debunked. The Leather and Hide Council of America (LHCA) has taken a significant step by commissioning an independent study to conduct a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). This study, set to be published in April, will reveal that the figures presented in the Higg Materials Sustainability Index (MSI) overstate leather’s climate impact by a staggering 8,000 times.

Choosing to use genuine leather, a by-product of the meat and dairy industry, for car interiors is not just a trend but a responsible choice. This upcycled material proves to be the most sustainable option. It’s encouraging to see that more and more individuals are recognising this fact.
