The UK based luxury car manufacturer, part of the VW Group, has become the first automotive member of the Leather Working Group (LWG).

Bentley’s membership is part of the company’s strategy to become the world’s most sustainable automotive brand.

The manufacturer recently launched its Beyond100 strategy, laying out its goals to become carbon neutral by 2030 and lead the way in sustainability for the luxury automotive industry by reducing the environmental impact of its production processes.

Bentley is now onboarding its leather suppliers through LWG certification, via the recently mandated LWG Leather Manufacturer Audit Protocol 7.0 (P7), to ensure their leather supply chain is operating in a responsible manner.
