The Leather Working Group (LWG) organization strives to promote best practices and reduce the environmental impact of the leather industry. Sievi has recommended that all its leather suppliers join the international LWG community, which aims to provide and maintain audit protocols for the environmental performance of leather manufacturers and promote sustainable practices. More than 60% of Sievi’s leather suppliers are already part of the working group and the remainder are in the process of joining.
The EN ISO 20345:2011 safety footwear standard has been replaced by the new EN ISO 20345:2022 standard. The standard has a transition period until the end of 2027, so there will be products on the market that are certified according to both the new and the old standard.
All Sievi products certified after 1 January 2023 have been tested according to the new EN ISO 20345:2022 standard.
