There are several techniques to add or remove leading zeroes.
I will list some of these here, all of them intended for unsigned decimal numbers.
Remove Leading Zeroes  

#  Command  Pros and Cons 
1  SET /A Var = 100%Var% %% 100 

2  SET Var=10%Var% 

3  IF "%Var:~0,1%"=="0" SET Var=%Var:~1% 

4  :Loop 

5  FOR /F "tokens=* delims=0" %%A IN ("%Var%") DO SET Var=%%A 

6  FOR /F "tokens=* delims=0" %%A IN ("%Var%") DO SET /A Var=%%A+0 

7  FOR /F "tokens=* delims=0" %%A IN ("%Var%") DO SET Var=%%A 

8  FOR /F "tokens=* delims=0" %%A IN ("%Var%") DO SET Var=%%A 

Of all techniques to remove leading zeroes presented here, #8 is the preferred one, as it will work for any number, without any restriction.
Add Leading Zeroes  

#  Command  Pros and Cons 
1  IF %Var% LSS 10 SET Var=0%Var% 

2  IF 1%Var% LSS 100 SET Var=0%Var% 

3  IF 1%Var% LSS 100 SET Var=0%Var% 

4  SET Var=00%Var% 

Of all techniques to add leading zeroes presented here, #4 is the preferred one, as it will work for any number, without any restriction.
Notes:  (1)  Modulo division method (first command in the first table) by Paul Ruggieri. 
(2)  Math based techniques can be used for numbers up to 9 digits for Windows XP and later, or up to 4 digits for Windows 2000.  
(3)  Math based techniques with "prefixes" can be used for numbers up to 5 digits for Windows XP and later, and only 1 or 2 digits for Windows 2000.  
(4)  All of these commands are intended for decimal digits only, no signs allowed.
