LWG Member Conference 2022: Speaker Announcement #2

At Leather Working Group we are delighted to announce our second wave of speakers for the 2022 LWG Member Conference, our hybrid members-only event. We invite the very best industry experts to talk about important topics for the leather industry and actors within its supply chain.  

This year, LWG members can join us virtually or in person at Fiera Milano in Italy to hear from leading authorities in the world of leather sustainability. Our agenda includes guest speakers across our four key themes for the day: 1) continuous improvement, 2) traceability and supply chain due diligence, 3) environmental impact, and 4) responsible chemistry.
