The ‘Tannery of the Future’ is an easily accessible sustainability checklist for tanneries, wholesalers, fashion brands and retailers. They use this document to discover how leather production can improve on sustainability, on the basis of questions on 14 different aspects of CSR e.g. housekeeping, waste management, working conditions and wages.
The Tannery of the Future also provides references to sources of more in-depth information and guidance. The checklist acts as a means for dialogue between buyers and sellers, by focusing on customers’ interests to define the areas that are crucial to future-proofing the industry.
