Building a Responsible Future
Jaguar Land Rover has been honoured with the 2015 Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development, and was named ‘Responsible Business of the Year 2013/14’ by Business in the Community (BiTC). It recognises our continued investment to improve our environmental performance.
Sustainability is one of the core principles driving our business.
We have already met our 2020 targets, reducing CO2 emissions and water use by 30% per vehicle. In manufacturing, we have cut waste landfilled per vehicle by 79% since 2007, and have reduced operational CO2 emissions by 30.5% per vehicle.
We are committed to sourcing more recycled aluminium in our manufacturing, and we regularly meet with our top 200 suppliers to ensure that they too follow our high standards for sustainability.
We are constantly striving to improve fuel consumption and reduce CO2 emissions across our entire ranges of Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles. In doing this we have developed new state-of-the-art engines, which offer remarkable fuel efficiency. This includes our hybrid engine for the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models, which can deliver 26% lower CO2 emissions than the conventional Range Rover. Plus, our Ingenium engine range which is featured in the following models:
- Land Rover Discovery Sport E-Capability
- Land Rover All-New Discovery
- Range Rover Evoque E-Capability
- Jaguar XE E-Performance
- Jaguar XF E-Performance
- Jaguar All-New F-PACE
Our Jaguar E-Performance models carry a discreet blue E badge on the rear of the vehicle, and to identify Land Rover E-Capability models, just look for blue Discovery Sport and Evoque name badges, also on the rear of the vehicle.
Reinvesting in the community
Our 'Inspiring Tomorrow's Engineers' initiative offers work experience, training and qualifications to help the young and out-of-work unlock their potential.
Jaguar Land Rover supports many charities that do vital work addressing issues of health, human rights, conservation and sustainability.
In backing ClimateCare’s ‘LifeStraw® Carbon for Water’ project, in the Busia region of Kenya, we have helped to reduce CO2 and provide safe drinking water for 1.9 million people. We have also donated Land Rover vehicles to both the International Red Cross and the conservation charity, Born Free, to assist them in their vital work.
