About the LWG

The Leather Working Group (LWG) is a group of brands, retailers, product manufacturers, leather manufacturers, chemical suppliers and technical experts that have worked together to develop a environmental stewardship protocol specifically for the leather manufacturing industry.

The group endeavours to promote improvement in the leather manufacturing industry by creating alignment on environmental priorities by bringing visibility to best practices and providing guidelines for continual improvement.

The LWG meets twice per year in various locations around the world. These locations vary depending on the timings of fairs and topical industry events but tend to rotate between Asia, USA, or Europe. The meetings are open to all members.

There is an Executive Committee made up of representative parties that provides oversight and direction for the group. The details for this can be found on the Executive Committee page.

LWG expects any brands or suppliers that wish to use the LWG protocol to assess their leather supply chain to be fully engaged, paid up members of the Leather Working Group.


Leather Working Group Limited is governed under the Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association, Issue 3, dated April 2016 (amended pursuant to a special resolution passed at a general meeting of the Company held on 2nd April 2016.  CLICK HERE FOR ARTICLES OF ASSOCIATION
