Accessibility is another key objective of SLF and to ensure this, leather manufacturers and associated facilities will not be excluded from partnership on the basis of non-conformance or non-certification in one or more areas. Instead, partnership will enable companies to demonstrate what they can comply with and where their outstanding areas of concern or improvement are, in order to give a fully transparent mechanism that supports continued improvement across the three pillars of sustainability.
