ELeather Group has been awarded the Higg certificate by the Sustainable Apparel Coalition. The document certifies that ELeather uses the Higg Index to measure and grow its sustainability practice, recognising the company’s strive for continuous improvement in this area.
“The Higg Index independently verifies how we at ELeather measure environmental impact of the materials we manufacture and helps identify relevant areas to make meaningful changes and meet our sustainability objectives. It’s very useful in shaping our decision making, plus having the certificate proves to our partners and customers that we are very focused on developing the most sustainable version of ELeather” said Alexandra Bennett, Director of Consumer and Footwear at ELeather.
