Jaguar Land Rover asks its suppliers to set targets for net zero emissions

Jaguar Land Rover is calling for its global supply network to commit to sustainability targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and help the automaker achieve net zero carbon emissions across its supply chain, products and operations by 2039.

The carmaker will ask its Tier 1 suppliers to set their own decarbonisation path and require them to report transparently and show progress towards their targets. They must disclose their carbon reporting and work with their own supply chains to deliver the same reductions.

Jaguar Land Rover has informed its entire supply network of these requirements, consisting of more than 5,000 companies worldwide.

“Meeting our Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) commitments and achieving carbon net zero across our entire supply chain by 2039 are the driving forces behind Jaguar Land Rover’s industrial strategy,” said Jaguar Land Rover’s Managing Director of Industrial Operations, Barbara Bergmeier. . “We can only achieve these ambitious goals together, which is why we invite suppliers to join us on this challenging but exciting journey, to strengthen existing relationships to enable all parties to achieve significant, quantifiable goal.”

Jaguar Land Rover’s commitment to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2039 is part of its Reimagine strategy which will include the electrification of the Land Rover and Jaguar brands. Changes made to the Jaguar brand will be particularly important as it will transform into an all-electric brand that aims to compete with Bentley.

“Our vision is pioneering, first-class lighting and electronic systems for all mobility concepts in the global automotive industry,” added Wilhelm Steger, CEO of ZKW Group, which supplies first-class lighting systems to Jaguar Land Rover. “Together with Jaguar Land Rover, ZKW is taking the journey towards a more sustainable future. We are committed to protecting the environment and reducing our environmental impact. As a consequence, we take responsibility, we develop towards the Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi) within our business and convert our production sites to CO2 neutral by the end of 2025.”
