Jaguar Land Rover has committed to slash carbon emissions by around half across its operations by 2030 and achieve net zero by 2039.
The luxury car manufacturer announced its science-based goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in its own operations by 46% and across its value chain by 54% by 2030, including a 60% reduction throughout the use phase of its vehicles.
The targets are part of its Reimagine strategy to achieve net zero emissions across its operations, supply chain and products by 2039.
It intends to decarbonise across its design and materials, manufacturing operations, supply chain, electrification, circular economy processes and up to end-of-life treatment to achieve its goals.
We’ve committed to reducing greenhouse gas #emissions from our operations by 46% – and by 54% per vehicle across our value chain – by 2030. @ScienceTargets approved benchmarks that confirm our commitment to the Paris Agreement.https://t.co/X6gJBcSdyihttps://t.co/5qxVsZHBnQ

Rossella Cardone, Director and Head of Sustainability Office at Jaguar Land Rover said: “Sustainability sits at the core of our Reimagine strategy, with the aim to achieve net carbon zero by 2039, as the creator of the world’s most desirable modern luxury vehicles.
“As we move from climate ambition into action, we are now embedding sustainability into the Jaguar Land Rover DNA to minimise our carbon footprint across our value chain. Science-based targets tell us how much and how quickly we need to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, as well as keeping stakeholders informed about our progress.”
The company has also introduced the new role of Sustainability Director, appointing Rossella Cardone to drive its transformation and support François Dossa, Executive Director, Strategy and Sustainability.
