Cutting Through The Confusion

Some Of The Biggest Myths That Consumers Are Consistently Fed Are Based Around The Sustainability Of Materials. Companies Have Been Using The Term “Sustainability” As Part Of Their Marketing And Public Relations Strategies More Frequently In Recent Years And This Is Having An Adverse Effect.

Sustainable Leather Foundation is committed to providing consumers with factual, relevant information about leather as a material choice to enable better understanding and more confident purchasing decisions.

Working with industry stakeholders that include not only those companies who directly work with leather but also with trusted NGOs such as WWF and IGOs such as UNECE and UN/CEFACT, enables SLF to provide a pathway for sustainability based on the very best advice and input from world leading experts in their respective fields.
