Webinar: Evaluating & Monitoring Challenges at the Farm Level of the Bovine Leather Supply Chain – Part 3 : Climate+ Baseline & Strategy for Leather
Textile Exchange has set the goal to help the fashion and textile industry achieve a 45% reduction in the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that come from producing fibers and raw materials by 2030. This goal underpins our Climate+ strategy. We call it Climate+ because it goes beyond accounting for GHG emissions. Instead, it is an interconnected approach that swaps siloed solutions for interdependent impact areas like soil health, water, and biodiversity.
In parts 1 and 2 of this Leather Learning Webinar Series, we have taken a deep dive into 2 of the major challenges related to the farming levels of the bovine leather supply chain: animal welfare and deforestation and how they impact climate, biodiversity, animal welfare, and people.
In this webinar, we will explore how leather can contribute to the ambitious Climate+ goals. Our Climate+ Impact team will give an overview of our Climate+ strategy and approach and provide a deep dive on the baseline for leather. The key points of the Climate+ strategy developed for leather will be presented and finally, we will look into how progress may be measured.
