Leather garment manufacturer Lanka Leather Fashion is committed to promoting sustainability. Not content to only negate its overall impact, LLF improves its environmental performance year-on-year, and has even managed to achieve a notable 16 per cent reduction on its carbon footprint with a 11 per cent increase in production as well.
Founded in 1981, Lanka Leather supplies to prominent high-street fashion brands such as Hugo Boss, Gerry Weber, Michael Kors and Taleco. The organisation’s leadership in reducing and compensating for its environmental impact is getting much deserved attention from key decision makers and stakeholders in its global supply chains.
The manufacturer holds the title of Carbon Neutral for the third year in a row. This was awarded by UK based Natural Capital Partners. Carbon Consulting Company has conducted an in-depth assessment of LLF’s greenhouse gas emissions. LLF then invested in a renewable energy project in Sri Lanka to obtain registered carbon credits through Natural Capital Partners.
High quality, sustained volumes and competitive pricing have been key factors contributing to the success of Sri Lanka’s footwear and leather products industry. High quality Sri Lankan leather goods in the range of leather gloves, travel bags, back packs, ladies’ handbags, jackets and small leather goods cater to niche international markets.
