Bentley Motors took another step in its Beyond100 journey to environmental sustainability of its products and materials, as it becomes the first automotive member of the Leather Working Group.

Established in 2005, the Leather Working Group is comprised of leather manufacturers, traders, suppliers, and technical experts. Brands and retailers in fashion, accessories, and footwear, to homewares and interiors, and now the luxury automotive industry also joined the group.

Bentley said the Leather Working Group aims to improve environmental performance in the leather industry. The group monitors leather manufacturers to ensure they follow best practice benchmarks.

As a corporate member, Bentley is now working toward ensuring that by the start of 2022, all of its leather is sourced from suppliers and tanneries that have successfully completed the Leather Working Group audit process. The end goal of each one is to achieve the Leather Working Group’s gold standard award. 

“Beyond100 is about Bentley becoming the most ethical and sustainable luxury automotive manufacturer. That’s why we are ensuring that the traditional materials we use are sourced in the most sustainable way, whilst at the same time accelerating the development of new materials offering an even wider range of choice to our customers," head of production purchasing at Bentley Mark Cooke said.
