We recognize standards that are already in use by the industry.
Our standards benchmark for leather production outlines a set of minimum environmental and social requirements that existing standards and certification schemes must guarantee. Suppliers need to be certified to a standard that meets these requirements to be a part of the Leather Impact Accelerator.
HOW IT WORKS
The benchmark gives brands confidence that our environmental and social minimums are being met.
All standards and certifications that are approved by the Leather Impact Accelerator have been assessed by a third party to confirm that they meet our benchmark. This means that brands can be confident that the farm is respecting the minimum level of best practices established by the LIA, regardless of which standard they’re using.
