LIA-161 Benchmark for Leather Production Environmental Standards, V1.0
The goal of this document is to set forth a global standard benchmark upon which to evaluate standards that address environmental challenges in leather production.
Leather production is considered to be all hide transformation stages from beamhouse to finished leather. The scope of this document does not include slaughterhouse or cut and sew. The scope of this standard benchmark is limited to standards that apply to a production site, defined as a site for a given production site (legal entity), in one geographical location, where leather production operations are undertaken and for which operating permits have been issued.
