VF achieves 100% LWG-audited leather

The US apparel and footwear group, owner of brands such as Timberland and Vans, has published its fourth Made for Change sustainability and responsibility report
In addition to achieving 100% leather sourced from Leather Working Group (LWG) audited tanneries to produce footwear, the group will supposedly invest in the development of chemistries to reduce the environmental impact of the leather supply chain.
VF Corporation’s traceability programme has also identified potential environmental risks associated with deforestation in the Amazon biome. As a result, the group has discontinued leather sourcing from Brazil until it is certain that the materials used will not contribute to aggravating the problem.
