Checklists on best available techniques for the leather industry: Tool for identification of improvement measures

The European Union has published “best available techniques” (BAT) and related reference documents (BREFs) for the leather industry, based on an information exchange with industry, responsible authorities and NGOs. The checklists have been elaborated to assist producers and external consultants when assessing companies’ improvement potential and options for the reduction of environmental impacts. The results serve as an planning tool to take action.
