This three-year program funded by the EU for the promotion and development of sustainable leather production in Ethiopia sees the involvement of the multinational chemicals supplier, Stahl, together with the NGOs Solaridad and CSR Netherlands. “Ethiopia is renowned for its abundant livestock and for its fine leather,” explained Heske Verburg, Managing Director of Solidaridad Europe, “but few European companies have established direct business relations with Ethiopia. With this project we want to allow Ethiopia to play a more significant role as supplier of leather and leather goods to the European market”. The main aims for Ethiopian leather identified by the programme are training of personnel, selection of the hides, development of tanning methods that use less environmental resources, and improvement of working conditions along the entire leather value chain.
