Jaguar Land Rover Commits to Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 2030 and Reaching Carbon Net Zero Emissions by 2039
Jaguar Land Rover is inviting its global supply network to commit to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi)-approved sustainability targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and help the company achieve carbon net zero emissions across its supply chain, products, and operations by 2039.
Going net zero across the full value chain will benefit people, clients, and the planet. Jaguar Land Rover's commitments can only be met by collaborating closely with suppliers who share the same vision for change. As a result, Jaguar Land Rover has invited its global Tier 1 supplier network - products, services, and logistics - to align with its 2030 goals while maintaining the same quality.
Jaguar Land Rover will encourage Tier 1 suppliers to establish a decarbonisation strategy, report honestly, and demonstrate progress toward targets. It would entail publishing their carbon footprint and working with their own supply chain to achieve the same reductions. This need has been communicated with Jaguar Land Rover's global supply network, which includes over 5,000 companies.
Jaguar Land Rover is undergoing a deep change through its Reimagine plan to offer sustainability-rich modern luxury vehicles by decarbonising its whole value chain, adopting circular economy principles, and transitioning to fully electrified product ranges by the end of the decade.
Barbara Bergmeier, Executive Director of Industrial Operations, Jaguar Land Rover, said:
"Fulfilling our SBTi commitments and achieving carbon net zero emissions across our entire supply chain by 2039 are the driving forces in Jaguar Land Rover’s industrial strategy. We can only meet these ambitious targets together, which is why we’re inviting suppliers to join us on this challenging but exciting journey, strengthening existing relationships to enable all parties to achieve significant, quantifiable goals."
Wilhelm Steger, CEO of the ZKW Group, which supplies premium lighting systems to Jaguar Land Rover, said:
"Our vision is pioneering premium lighting and electronic systems for all mobility concepts in the global automotive industry. Together with Jaguar Land Rover, ZKW is taking the journey towards a more sustainable future. We are committed to protecting the environment and reducing environmental impact. As a consequence, we are taking responsibility, we are developing towards the Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi) within our business and converting our production sites to CO2-neutral by the end of 2025."
