Our one-day Member Conference on will allow members of our group to meet in person for the first time in three years, with virtual attendance options for those not able to travel. The LWG Member Conference will take place at the Fiera Milano exhibition centre in Milan, Italy on Thursday September 22, 2022 in parallel with the Lineapelle Leather Fair.
Our conference agenda will touch on the following topics of interest, driven by our member's needs:
From this, we have designed the LWG Member Conference to focus on four core areas:
- Continuing Improvement – As a world leader in the leather industry, we recognize the need to evolve, grow and change in ways that drive positive impact. The LWG Member Conference explores our strategy for change and key areas that need action.
- Traceability & Supply Chain Due Diligence – Mapping your leather supply chain is just the start. Our conference will give a deep dive into the realities of developing a robust global due diligence framework for the leather industry to facilitate better traceability, tackle deforestation, and address other crucial issues across the leather supply chain, involving all actors that have a key role to play in supporting this global movement.
- Environmental Impact – Monitoring and quantifying the environmental impact of leather as a material is crucial for setting and meeting goals for the future. Our conference will showcase how leather industry leaders are paving the way to zero through lifecycle assessments, innovation, circularity and more.
- Responsible Chemistry – Chemicals are part of our lives. This event calls for a greater understanding of chemical management and how we can all play our part in the responsible use of chemicals within the leather industry.
