WHAT IS THE SLF?

The Sustainable Leather Forum (SLF) is the first international event dedicated to CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) in the leather industries. Held in the heart of Paris, France, it gathers more than 400 international participants – businesses operating in the sector, major fashion and design corporations, SMEs, micro-businesses, mid-sized companies, institutional bodies, opinion leaders and consultancies – to focus on social, environmental and economic issues.

As a unique platform for sharing the CSR best practices of the leather industries sector and its ecosystem, the SLF is an invaluable source of key information to help shape the CSR strategy of companies and support them in their transformation.
Over the course of an exceptional day, international experts and companies will have the opportunity to speak during keynotes, round tables and debates punctuated by networking sessions.
