Leather Industry Open to Engagement with SAC to Address Higg Index Inaccuracies

The coalition of global leather industry bodies, headed by the International Council of Tanners (ICT), welcomes the positive tone and the openness to dialogue expressed by the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC)’s Executive Director, Amina Razvi, and looks forward to discussions to bring about an effective improvement of the Higg MSI.

The leather industry regrets that SAC will not suspend the MSI, pending the necessary improvements needed for the scoring of natural materials. The ongoing promotion of incorrect environmental impact values for leather, specifically, a natural material and by-product of the meat and dairy sector, will continue to damage the reputation of the leather value chain.
