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 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
