The increasing importance of sustainability is a key focus at the next congress of the IULTCS with restricted chemicals and other topics relating to corporate responsibility high on the agenda. The event will be held in Dresden, Germany between 25-28 June, 2019 and will attract delegates spanning the globe and from the entire leather value chain.
This meeting which is held every two years is a valuable opportunity to meet leather experts who are selected to share technical developments and innovation relating to restricted chemicals as well as wider industry experience in order to support a sustainable and competitive future for the leather industry.
The programme will be published later in the year and you can learn more about the conference and find registration details on their website.
Watch the Chem-MAP video to see how this new ZDHC approved MRSL verification programme is engaging all organisations in the leather, textile and synthetic materials supply chains to drive the use of responsible chemistry in the manufacture of consumer products.
