Currently reading: Jaguar Land Rover to slash greenhouse gas emissions by 2030
Firm sets new emissions reduction targets – from operations and vehicle fleet – in line with the Paris Agreement

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has laid out ambitious targets for the reduction of greenhouse gases across its production processes and vehicle fleet by 2030.

In line with objectives set out in the 2015 Paris Agreement – an international treaty aimed at keeping global warming to less than 1.5deg C – Jaguar Land Rover will slash greenhouse gas emissions from its operations by 46% over the next eight years, and emissions from its value chains by an average of 56%.

It will also reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the vehicles it produces over their lifetimes by 60%. Crucial to this will be the electrification of its model line-up: all Jaguar models will be electric from 2025 while Land Rover will start launching pure-EVs in 2024 and offer an electric version of every model by the end of the decade. 

The goals have been approved by  the international Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

The targeted reductions are relative to greenhouse gas emissions achieved by JLR in 2019 and represent a significant step towards the company's self-imposed target of achieving total net zero emissions by 2039. 

Details of precisely how the company will cut its emissions have yet to be fully detailed, but it says it will "decarbonise across design and materials, manufacturing operations, supply chain, electrification, batterystrategy, circular economy processes, and up to end-of-life treatment".

It has also appointed Rossella Cardone to the newly created role of director and head of sustainability, wherein she will report to strategy and sustainability boss François Dossa.

Cardone said: “Sustainability sits at the core of our Reimagine strategy, with the aim to achieve net carbon zero by 2039, as the creator of the world’s most desirable modern luxury vehicles. 

"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.

"Science-based targets tell us how much and how quickly we need to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions as well as keeping stakeholders informed about our progress."

It looks the part, promises 0-60mph in 4.5sec, has a near-300 mile range, and is among the first luxury EVs to arrive from an established brand. Can the I-Pace topple Tesla?

By building in premium, the environmental impact is lessened. These models are the very essence of efficiency, premium efficiency.

Jaguar are slashing emissions already, by selling a lot less cars.
