At Loch Lomond Group, we are committed to working towards a sustainable future for our brands, local communities, employees and customers.

We understand our impact on the environment and we are striving to improve it. The foundation of our environmental and sustainability strategy is legal compliance, maximising the efficiency of our resources and minimising waste.


In 2023 we developed a Sustainability framework to set out our priorities and measure our success.

The framework anchors 5 key drivers that are designed to deliver the targets that make Loch Lomond Group a more responsible and sustainable business; legislation & management, energy & emissions, circular economy, protecting nature and socially responsible.

legislation & management

We are committed to maintaining a high level of compliance across all current and future environmental legislation.

To recognise this, we are striving towards ISO14001 certification by the end of our next financial year. ​


Our dedication to responsible energy usage and emission reduction drives our every action. Here's how we're making strides towards a greener future:

Energy Monitoring: We've installed energy meters to gain insights into our energy consumption, to assist in minimising our usage as much as possible.

Emission Reduction Initiatives: Committed to sustainability, we've completed compressed air leak surveys across all our sites. By fixing these leaks, we're curbing emissions by an impressive 100 tonnes O2e.

Emission Goals: Aligning with the SWA's vision, we're resolute in reducing emissions across Scope 1, 2, and 3 to achieve Net Zero by 2045.

Informed Decision-Making: Quantifying the carbon
footprint of our product portfolio is a pivotal step and we have made some good progress in completing this with some of our core products.


Our commitment to sustainability drives us to embrace the principles of the circular economy. Here's how we're making a difference:

Packaging Progress: We're actively gathering data on the recyclability and recycled content of our packaging. Through this, we're determined to enhance sustainability in both our core and value ranges.

Zero Waste to Landfill: By 2025, we're working towards an ambitious goal – achieving Zero Waste to Landfill across all our operational sites. This embodies our dedication to minimising our environmental footprint.

Waste Minimisation: Our dedication to sustainability extends to our production process. We're focused on minimising waste generation, exemplified by our practice of repurposing draff and supergrains as animal feed for local farmers.


In collaboration with the Good Bee Company, we've taken meaningful steps to protect and celebrate our natural world. Here's how we're making a difference:

Beehives: We have welcomed over 250,000 bees to our Glen Scotia and Loch Lomond Distilleries and the Glen Catrine bottling plant, championing biodiversity and healthy ecosystems. We are moving them over to repurposed whisky cask hives to match what we already have at our Glen Scotia distillery.

Engaging Learning: We've offered our employees the opportunity to delve into the world of bees and beekeeping, This not only educates but also rewards our employees with delicious honey!

Thriving Partnerships: Our partnership with the Good Bee Company empowers us to do more. Their Community Impact program educates local schools about pollinator protection, while we actively support their wildflower initiatives.

By collaborating with the Good Bee Company and embracing these initiatives, we're fostering awareness and action in the younger generation, safeguarding our cherished natural environment for years to come.


At our core, we're dedicated to making a positive impact. Our team is committed to nurturing social responsibility and uplifting those around us. This commitment is exemplified through fundraising for local and national charities, as well as supporting local food banks.

In 2022, our team united for the renowned Great Scottish Run, raising an impressive £3,000 donated to CHSS, with more members signed up for 2023's race.  From donations of toys to local toybanks and Christmas to participating in national fundraising events like Macmillan Coffee Mornings and Save the Children Christmas jumper day, we’re driven to uplift and strengthen our community.
