Land Rover To Slash Gas Emissions By Half

Jaguar Land Rover has announced plans to improve its sustainability by intending to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by nearly half before 2030.

It announced the goals, which were approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), earlier this week, demonstrating its commitment to join the fight against climate change. Included in its aims were the commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across its operations by 46 per cent, and by 54 per cent per vehicle across its value chain, over the next eight years.

This will help the company achieve net zero carbon emissions across its supply chain, products and operations before 2039.

Rossella Cardone, director and head of sustainability office at Jaguar Land Rover, said: “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.”

It intends to achieve this by decarbonising across design and materials, supply chain, manufacturing operations, battery strategy, supply chain, electrification, circularly economy processes and up to end-of-life treatment.

Ms Cardone was given the role to drive the group’s environmental goals, as well as support Francois Doss, its executive director in Strategy and Sustainability.

Manging director of SBT at CDP Alberto Carrillo Pineda congratulated Land Rover on establishing these targets, which are in line with the 1.5C emissions reduction that was set out in the Paris Agreement.

This treaty was established in November 2016 to limit global warming to below 2C compared with pre-industrial levels by limiting greenhouse gas emissions as much as possible.
