Textile Exchange Sustainability Conference and Responsible Leather Round Table Summit, Vancouver, October 2019

Textile Exchange’s Responsible Leather Round Table (RLRT) will be hosting the RLRT Summit, to take place in Vancouver, British Columbia on October 18th from 9am-5pm PST.
As part of the Textile Exchange Sustainability Conference, the RLRT Summit offers an opportunity to learn more about the work Textile Exchange is doing with leather, as well as a chance to engage with representatives from across the beef and leather industries: beef producers, leather manufacturers, brands, and NGOs. The Responsible Leather program is working across these two industries to develop a sourcing tool for brands and retailers to use in making more sustainable leather choices, in order to meet the increasing demand of consumers for products that have their origins in responsible farming and processing practices.
TE welcome all who are interested to participate in this summit, to both share your thoughts and learn about the importance of this collaborative approach aimed at not only benefiting the beef, leather, and fashion industries, but the animals, the people, and the planet.
