Webinar: Meet Sustainable Leather Producers from Ethiopia

Donderdag 17 september 2020 van 14.30 tot 16.00 uur | Online

Ethiopian leather and leather goods producers move to a more sustainable production. Tanneries and producers of bags, shoes and accessories are adopting technologies that are more environmentally friendly and they work in ways that take employees’ rights very seriously. In this webinar you will meet four companies from Ethiopia that will show you that they produce sustainable products with a good quality.

This webinar is a carrousel of four companies with an introduction by MVO Nederland. The carrousel focuses on sustainability aspects of production and showing products. Participants will have the opportunity for asking questions and for getting in touch directly with the producers.

This webinar is organised by the Green Tanning Initiative: an EU-sponsored development programme, run by Solidaridad Ethiopia, Stahl and MVO Nederland.
