COTANCE wants zero carbon footprint

The European Union’s leather industry body COTANCE is arguing that tanneries’ share of their product’s upstream carbon footprint should be rated as zero. The organisation states that as hides and skins are a by-product, leather makers should not carry any environmental burden from the rearing of livestock, and that only the meat and milk should carry the burden of the CO2 footprint. According to COTANCE, an agreement that the carbon footprint for leather begins at the abattoir will support leather’s circular economy credentials.
