JLR’s suppliers to align to zero emissions targets

Jaguar Land Rover is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions across its operations and entire value chain by 2030, approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi)

As part of its efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, Jaguar Land Rover invited its global supply network to commit to 2030 sustainability targets approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). The company aims to reach carbon net zero emissions across its supply chain, products, and operations by 2039.

Achieving net zero across entire value chain will benefit people, clients, and the planet. Jaguar Land Rover’s commitments can only be achieved by working closely with suppliers who share the same vision for change. For this, the company invited its global tier 1 supplier network – products, services and logistics – to align with its 2030 goals, while maintaining the same quality.

This commitment would involve suppliers disclosing the  carbon reporting and collaborating with their own supply chain to deliver the same reductions. This requirement has been shared with Jaguar Land Rover’s supply network, totaling more than 5000 companies across the globe.

Ms Barbara Bergmeier, Executive Director of Industrial Operations, Jaguar Land Rover, said: “Fulfilling our SBTi commitments and achieving carbon net zero emissions across our entire supply chain by 2039 are the driving forces in JLR’s industrial strategy. We can only meet these ambitious targets together, which is why we’re inviting suppliers to join us on this challenging but exciting journey, strengthening existing relationships to enable all parties to achieve significant, quantifiable goals.”
