Scottish Leather Group is a UK-based leather manufacturer who have made significant investments over many years to improve the sustainability of their organisation, plants and practices. This has allowed them to have one of the lowest carbon footprints for leather manufacturing in the EU.

We were delighted to be asked to produce their 2016 Sustainability Report with the organisation looking to highlight some of the exceptional outcomes they had achieved. The new brochure would represent a big step forward for the company and we were asked that it include infographics and art-directed photography.



The numbers were impressive – a reduction of CO2 from 10 to 2 kg/m2 over a 12 year period, 11.5 tonnes of waste recovered and the celebration of various staff members being with the company for over 41 years – sustainability indeed. The loft team concentrated on creating images, text and graphics that would creatively bring this information to life in the most effective way possible.

Beautiful Infographics and photographs were created and we worked closely with the entire team at Scottish Leather Group to include interviews of various staff members giving a more personal approach to the final report.



The project was a huge success. In addition to the printed report, there was a digital version and many of the features were shared on social media as mini-campaigns too. The loft continued its work with Scottish Leather Group for the design of the 2017 and 2018 Sustainability Reports.

“Production of our Annual Sustainability Report used to be one of the most stressful jobs in the marketing calendar due to its complexity and tight deadline. This year it was stress-free, thanks to everybody involved including the loft. It is a marked improvement on earlier versions and the introduction of infographics has transformed this publication.”
