Celebrating Earth Day 2022

LWG wishes you a happy Earth Day 2022

At Leather Working Group, we are inspiring our members to align with our climate-based targets for a better planet and a sustainable future with responsibly made leather.

By 2030, we have committed to achieving a 100% deforestation and conversion-free (DCF) leather supply chain.

We have also aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs).

We have more climate-based goals to be announced soon! Active participation by our members helps us evolve the leather industry towards a more sustainable future.

Leather Working Group members can get involved with what we do by participating in our subgroups and steering committees:

  • LWG Traceability Working Group
    • Regional Traceability Steering Committee
    • Deforestation Steering Committee
    • Chain of Custody Steering Committee
  • LWG Animal Welfare Group
  • LWG Environmental Impact Working Group
  • LWG Technical Sub-Group
  • LWG Tannery of the Future Sub-Group
  • LWG Trader Working Group
  • LWG Supplier Sub-Group

Building a collaborative environment We believe there's strength in collaboration, and our philosophy is to create a pre-competitive eco-system where all stakeholders can engage, discuss, and learn.

To help us achieve our goals, we work with expert partners and affiliates across the industry including NGOs, educational institutions, not-for-profits, and commercial organizations.
