In response to the recent conflict, Leather Working Group (LWG) offers its full support to its LWG member companies based in Ukraine.
As a multi-stakeholder organization, LWG has members all over the globe and we therefore have a responsibility to support our members in different regions in times of crisis, be it environmental, humanitarian or other.
LWG condemns Russia’s military aggression towards Ukraine and stands in complete solidarity with the unfortunate victims of this war.
LWG will provide support to their certified members in Ukraine where possible, particularly in relation to their continued membership and future re-audit needs. Any of LWG’s members based in Ukraine may reach out to the LWG directly for more information as to how LWG may assist them.
LWG’s position and response to this conflict will evolve with the circumstances, and they are prepared to take further actions if necessary.
