Jaguar Land Rover has unveiled the sustainability goals for 2030 which includes reducing greenhouse gas emissions across its operations by 46 percent. In addition, the company will cut average vehicle emissions across its value chains by 54 percent, including a 60 percent reduction throughout the use phase of its vehicles. The British luxury marque had first announced its commitment to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) as part of its support for COP26, the climate change summit held in November 2021.
The sustainability goals set by JLR have been approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) as they confirm the company’s pathway to a 1.5°C emissions reduction in line with the Paris Agreement. These targets represent Jaguar Land Rover’s commitment to 2030, followed by a second-decade ambition for net-zero emissions across the supply chain, product, and operations by 2039, as part of its Reimagine strategy. To achieve this, the company will decarbonise across design and materials, manufacturing operations, supply chain, electrification, battery strategy, circular economy processes, and up to end-of-life treatment. To support its mission, Jaguar Land Rover has appointed Rossella Cardone in the new role of Sustainability Director to support François Dossa, Executive Director, Strategy and Sustainability.
