Jaguar Land Rover is partnering with the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference also known as COP26, ahead of the vital climate change summit in Glasgow in November.

“We are delighted to partner with COP26 and provide a fleet of all-electric vehicles, including Jaguar I-PACE performance SUVs, to deliver zero-emission transport at the summit,” said Jaguar Land Rover Chief Executive Officer Thierry Bolloré.

According to the British multinational automotive brand, Jaguar Land Rover will provide world leaders and delegates attending the 26th United Nations Climate Change conference a fleet of electric vehicles (EV) including the multi-award-winning all-electric performance SUV Jaguar I-Pace.

The said EV fleet will carry leaders and their teams as they travel to and from the venue.

“Jaguar Land Rover is an iconic British brand with a proven track record. (It is) showing climate leadership in (its) field with award-winning electric vehicles, and I am delighted these will be used by world leaders in Glasgow. I look forward to working with Jaguar Land Rover and all our partners ahead of the summit as we ensure a successful and inclusive COP26,” said COP26 President-Designate Alok Sharma.

This initiative aligns with Jaguar Land Rover’s Reimagine strategy, the brand’s new global strategy that will see the brands “reimagine” their future.

Underlined in the Reimagine strategy, Jaguar Land Rover looks to create a sustainably rich reimagination of modern luxury, unique customer experiences, and positive societal impact — ultimately becoming an all-electric luxury carmaker.

Jaguar Land Rover’s electrification strategy also looks to see the brand achieve zero tailpipe emissions by 2036 and net-zero carbon emissions across its supply chain, products, and operations by 2039.

Furthermore, the company has committed to a 1.5-degree aligned science-based target to reduce emissions in line with the Paris Agreement and supporting the UNFCCC Race to Zero.

In the next five years, Land Rover will welcome six pure electric variants as it continues to be the world leader of luxury SUVs.

“Sustainability is at the core of our business strategy, Reimagine, which enables us to focus on becoming net carbon zero by 2039, as the creator of the world’s most desirable modern luxury vehicles,” Bolloré said.
