“The framework developed by the Sustainable Leather Foundation is a significant step forward in providing transparency and integration throughout the leather value chain. The Transparency Dashboard coupled with the web platform provide examples of simple yet effective tools to put a sustainability lens on the performance of leather stakeholders.
We believe that clarity and transparency are paramount to leather sustainability and the most effective way to achieve zero deforestation and conversion supply chains in critical geographies.
By enhancing transparency to material sourcing and aiming to address deforestation in an open, clear and user-friendly way, SLF is providing a substantial contribution to the leather sector as a whole.”
