Throughout a series of lectures and debates on several links in the production chain, the CICB Sustainability Forum intends to bring together a range of suppliers and customers, for whom leather is a main pillar in their sustainability strategies, to share traceability tools and solutions for products in the fashion, automotive, furniture and other industries.
