CASE STUDY / DAY 2

Sustainable, Smart & Successful

The leather industry is largely influenced by large brand owners demanding more and more sustainable products for their ‘climate change aware’ customers. Though leather is a natural (by) product, most of the chemicals used for transforming a hide to a car seat or handbag are not. In the search for innovative raw materials boosting the sustainability profile of leather, we need to tap into new networks outside the conventional chemical industry. How can Procurement demonstrate its value and what should be the skills of the Procurement professionals in this new business environment?

  • Sustainability
  • Innovation
  • Development of new supply networks
  • Procurement skills
