Leather is an inherently environmentally friendly product, and leather manufacturing one of the earliest recycling
industries. In essence, it takes a by-product of beef and dairy farming and transforms it into a versatile and highly
prized material - one which itself can be recycled when it has outlived its original use.

At Bridge of Weir, not only do we believe that leather is an environmentally sustainable product, but that it can be
produced in an environmentally responsible manner. Substantial investment has made us one of the most modern
and environmentally efficient leather manufacturers in the world. This commitment is acknowledged in the
accreditation of our Baltic Works production facility to the ISO 14001 standard for environmental management.
