Environmental Sustainability Explained: Understanding the Basics

Sustainability is a key topic in every business. But also a complex one – especially in the fashion, automotive and footwear industry, which are encountering a selection of alternative materials and sometimes confusing messaging about the sustainability of materials, like leather.
