LWG Audit Protocol

The environmental auditing protocol and reporting mechanism have been developed and refined during each phase of the project in conjunction with the brand, tanner and supplier members. The protocol is seen as a dynamic improvement tool and is regularly reviewed by the members of the LWG to ensure that it is both challenging but realistic and achievable. It aims to tackle important topical issues, and reflect improvements or changes of technology within the sector.
