Leather sourcing and processing set to become more environmentally friendly

Circular Economy

Sustainable and artificial leather demand is expected to record strong growth within the first half of this decade, driven by developing shifts in OEM material sourcing strategies in response to market and policy demands for more sustainable and less environmentally harmful processes and alternatives to traditionally tanned, natural leather

Stringent government regulations and policies are enforcing responsible extraction methods to meet consumers’ changing lifestyle choices. An increasing trend is seen with car buyers opting for products and materials with least impact on the environment. This carbon-neutral initiative has led to growing demand for sustainable and principled leather tanning, which includes factors such as where the cows come from, what environment they were reared in, and the tanning process involved.
