In response to the pressing issue of deforestation, the forthcoming EU Deforestation Regulation, and the aims of deforestation-free supply chains, all leather manufacturers and supply chain stakeholders were invited to participate in our webinar dedicated to Deforestation Due Diligence and Regulatory Compliance.
Key Highlights of the Webinar:
European Union Deforestation Regulation - crucial insights about the European Union Deforestation Regulation. This regulation is poised to have a significant impact on supply chains, and our experts provifded valuable insights to help attendees prepare for its implications, and learn about the requirements, expectations, and compliance measures that are set to shape the leather industry's future.
Deforestation-Free Call to Action for Leather - we were proud to introduce the Deforestation-Free Call to Action for Leather initiative, a collaborative effort between Leather Working Group, Textile Exchange, and World Wildlife Fund. The Call to Action is a cross-sector initiative aimed at galvanizing action from brands to end the deforestation and conversion of natural ecosystems linked to leather sourcing.
LWG Standards Update - we provided an overview of our upcoming plans to develop the LWG Standards, and how traceability and deforestation due diligence will be a central focus of the first phase of work.
To accommodate a wider audience, the webinar was offered in English, Portuguese, and Italian.
