Sustainability and Environment is a core component in our new CSR strategy. We have identified areas within our supply chain for sourcing more sustainable and eco-conscious materials with which to build our cars.
We have established a partnership with Bridge of Weir Leather Company to supply all of our leather for Lotus Cars. Working with Bridge of Weir helps minimise our impact on the planet whilst maintaining the premium standards of our interiors.
Established in 1905, Bridge of Weir is a part of the Scottish Leather Group and has more than 100 years of experience in the automotive industry. Through its Sustainable by Nature initiative, Bridge of Weir believes that sustainable manufacturing is not a set of limitations, but an opportunity to move ever closer to our shared goal of creating a zero-impact, sustainable manufacturing platform..
Working with the company means we are part of a closed loop manufacturing process which prioritises the welfare of animals, ensuring all raw hides are utilised as a by-product of the meat industry, resulting in the world’s only Low Carbon Leather™.
