Leather Working Group is an international, not-for-profit membership organisation and responsible for the world’s largest leather sustainability program. The Leather Working Group Environmental Audit certifies tanneries and leather traders with Gold, Silver or Bronze rankings based on their adherence to guidelines intended to protect the environment. Environmentally preferred leather can be defined by two key parameters based on how the leather is manufactured and the inputs used to manufacture it.
LWG certification can be carried out by numerous third party auditors that follow the established protocol, and takes into account things like waste management, chemical usage and energy consumption. The certification is helpful in identifying brands that are seeking to source leather from environmentally responsible suppliers.
