OAKLAND - The global leather industry is urging Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) to suspend the use of the score it applies to leather in its Higg Materials Sustainability Index (MSI) over claims that it is unfair.

In a formal letter, 13 leather industry trade bodies have requested the suspension of leather’s MSI score pending reviews of the methodologies and data it uses.

Dr Kerry Senior, of the International Council of Tanners (ICT), who penned the letter, says the leather industry recognises the need for assessment of its environmental impacts.
