Claims & Labelling

The LWG Claims Framework has been developed to give Brand Members of the Leather Working Group clear guidance on how to make claims about LWG, your membership, and our audit protocols.

All members wishing to communicate about LWG must use this document to ensure all claims are accurate and appropriate, with no misleading language. It is not mandatory to make public claims about LWG, but those that wish to do so must comply with the criteria outlined in this document.

LWG monitors all claims relating to the group, our subscription members and our audited leather manufacturers to protect the credibility of our name and the integrity of our auditing programme, as well as building trust with consumers.
