Building a Responsible Future
Jaguar Land Rover has been named BITC (Business In The Community) Responsible Business of the Year in 2013, and is the UK’s first ever manufacturing company to win this highly regarded award. It recognises our continued investment to improve our environmental performance, and increase skills and opportunities for employees and young people.
Sustainability is one of the core principles driving our business.
In manufacturing, we have cut water usage in our factories by 70%, achieved a 54% reduction in total waste sent to landfill, and created the world's largest rooftop solar panel system at our Engine Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton: more than 21,000 photovoltaic panels produce over 30% of the centre's energy requirements.
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 range of 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 new Ingenium engine range which is featured in the following models:
- Land Rover Discovery Sport E-Capability
- Range Rover Evoque E-Capability
- Jaguar XE E-Performance
- Jaguar XF E-Performance
- Jaguar F-PACE
Our Jaguar E-Performance models carry a discreet blue E badge on the rear of the vehicles, and to identify Land Rover E-Capability models, just look for blue Discovery Sport and Evoque name badges, also on the rear of the vehicles.
Reinvesting in the community
Our 'Inspiring Tomorrow's Workforce' 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 carbon emissions and provide safe drinking water for over 700,000 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.
