OECD Forum on Due Diligence in the Garment and Footwear Sector

Deforestation risks linked to leather - engaging the value chain

Feb 22, 2024 | 3:15 PM - 4:30 PM

Room CC6


Recent legislative due diligence developments linked to deforestation are creating geolocation, traceability and communication needs along supply chains. They are also raising concerns about the inclusivity and rural development impacts of such legislative developments. For companies making and working with leather, getting information about, and acting on, the impacts associated with beef production upstream can be very complex. This session will be in workshop format, allowing participants to explore key questions and developments related to due diligence on deforestation risks in leather supply chains and regulatory compliance. It will also be an opportunity to learn about how the OECD Handbook on deforestation risks in agricultural supply chains can support companies.
