What is Leather Working Group (LWG) doing to address deforestation in the leather supply chain?  

Right now, LWG is working with member companies and NGO partners to address deforestation in the following ways:  

  • Our aim is to achieve deforestation and conversion-free (DCF) leather by 2030  

  • We set up the Traceability Working Group (a sub-group of LWG) to support traceability through developing chain of custody  

  • We have set up a Deforestation Steering Committee whose primary objective is to set out a pathway for deforestation and conversion-free (DCF) leather   

  • We will publish a detailed LWG Traceability Roadmap this year to map out our targets for the future  

  • We are working on expanded requirements for deforestation due diligence within the LWG audit standards 

  • We are developing our Global Due Diligence Framework which will be a resource for members to access data, resources and tools related to deforestation and other issues related to sourcing leather
