What you will learn

Measure and communicate the life cycle environmental performance of the leather products and organisations.

Implement new solutions to reduce the environmental impacts by choosing sustainable materials, chemicals and processes.

Develop important soft skills for the sector.

Understand the importance of Animal welfare and Traceability

To know about carbon and water footprint of leather tanning


The primary objective of this course is to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of various key concepts and considerations related to leather manufacturing, specifically in the context of sustainability, economics, and non-technological factors.

This entails a comprehensive understanding of the principles and methodology of LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) to assess the environmental impacts of leather production. Additionally, it aims to introduce the concept of LCC (Life Cycle Costing) and its relevance to leather manufacturing. The course will emphasize the importance of ethical considerations, including labor practices and animal welfare, throughout the leather production process. Furthermore, participants will learn about the calculation of carbon and water footprints, helping them grasp the ecological footprint of leather manufacturing.
