Improving environmental stewardship in tanning sector

Dec '08
The initiative started by the Leather Working Group (LWG) back in 2005 has continued to increase the profile of environmental stewardship within the leather manufacturing sector.

In October this year the LWG met at the new corporate offices of Wolverine World Wide Inc. in London. Twenty five delegates representing companies from 10 countries attended the meeting to launch issue 4.2 of the environmental auditing protocol which has been active since 1 December 2008.

The new protocol includes a number of revisions that will continue to drive environmental stewardship improvement within the leather manufacturing sector. The two most significant changes are the implementation of water usage measures and the inclusion of waste water treatment outflow performance measures.

The leading independent leather technology centre, working with hundreds of companies in over 40 countries BLC delivers a range of leather related services. Established for over 80 years we have the technical pedigree in leather technology to ensure fast accurate solutions to technical, management or environmental leather problems.

BLC Leather Technology Centre Limited is the certification body for the environmental audit protocol managed by the Leather Working Group. This is an important distinction, which should be taken into account in order to avoid any confusion and potential sensitivities.
