Five Years of Carbon Neutrality for Lanka Leather Fashion

Lanka Leather Fashion (Private) Limited [LLF], one of Asia’s most renowned leather manufacturers and suppliers to fashion brands such as Hugo Boss, Gerry Weber, Michael Kors and Taleco, demonstrated their commitment to being an environmentally conscious company by renewing their carbon neutral status for a fifth consecutive year. They were recognised for their significant achievement with a special commemorative plaque by the developer of The CarbonNeutral Protocol and the world’s leading provider of Carbon Offset solutions – Natural Capital Partners of the UK. LLF’s certification was awarded by Natural Capital Partners’ regional partner, The Sustainable Future Group (SFG), Sri Lanka’s only accredited verification and certification body that is authorised to verify and validate Organisational and Project-level Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions Inventories according to the official GHG Reporting ISO Standard – ISO 14064.

The certification renewal included an in-depth assessment of LLF’s organisational GHG emissions that was conducted by leading sustainability experts, The Carbon Consulting Company (CCC), and the subsequent investment in a Renewable Energy Project in return for registered Carbon Credits/Offsets. As part of LLF’s initiative to lower the company’s carbon footprint, it regularly measures, monitors and manages its operational carbon footprint, thereby maintaining a clear understanding of further changes and processes that need to be implemented on an ongoing basis. For instance, LLF was able to have a reduction of almost 10% of its overall emissions from last year through better and more efficient management of its freight and exports. The company also invests in new technologies such as the Italian Automated Leather Cutters, which result in faster production, thereby reducing any associated emissions and further decreasing its operational expenses.
