    The said 2030 sustainability targets announced by Jaguar Land Rover will be followed by a second-decade ambition for net-zero emissions across supply chain, product, and operations by 2039 and is part of the brand’s Reimagine strategy.

    To achieve this, Jaguar Land Rover will undergo a  major decarbonization process which includes the company's design and materials, manufacturing operations, supply chain, electrification, battery strategy, circular economy processes, and up to end-of-life treatment.  

    “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 minimize 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,” said Cardone.
