Scottish Leather Group is a UK based manufacturer of high-quality leather. The organisation is formed of a number of companies including Bridge Of Weir, Lang and Muirhead. They have made significant investments over many years to improve the sustainability of their plants and this allows them to have one of the lowest carbon footprints for leather production in the EU. For their ‘2016 Sustainability Report,’ they were wanting to highlight the exceptional outcomes they had achieved including a significant plant reduction in CO2, the winning of various awards and some of the best health & safety statistics in the industry.
The loft was delighted to assist by creating a brochure which included beautifully art-directed photography, creative infographics and a series of special features designed to bring the information to life. The success of the 2016 project led to another collaboration in 2017 and another in 2018. Throughout this time, the loft has began to oversee a ‘five-year-plan’ to create a more sustainable ‘Sustainability Report’ with a transition towards digital, a smaller document size and one which is printed in a more environmentally friendly way. Each report has been innovative yet in-line with the style of the brand while the photography and infographics have regularly been used by the organisation for other purposes. We have very much enjoyed working with the entire SLG team throughout the last few years and look forward to continuing our collaboration.
“Production of our Annual Sustainability Report used to be one of the most stressful jobs in the marketing calendar due to its complexity and a 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.”
