Chennai, May 20 (TIWN) The Indian leather industry should move towards net-zero carbon footprint to meet environmental norms, Union Science and Technology Minister Dr Jitendra Singh said on Thursday.

In his address at the Platinum Jubilee celebrations of CSIR-Central Leather Research Institute (CLRI), he said that the carbon footprint of leather processing activity needs to approach zero levels and the bio-economy of animal skin-derived products is the new mantra of the time.

He said that the carrying capacity requirements of the leather sector in locations like Tamil Nadu demand the implementation of Zero Liquid Discharge as the enforced environmental norm, which is under discussion.
