Jaguar Land Rover invites suppliers to align to 2030 sustainability commitments

As part of India’s Tata Motors-owned Jaguar Land Rover commitment in reducing greenhouse gas emissions across its operations and entire value chain by 2030.

Approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), the automajor has invited its network of suppliers to align with the carmaker’s sustainability targets.

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

Jaguar Land Rover will ask Tier 1 suppliers to set their decarbonisation pathway, report transparently and demonstrate progress towards their targets. This would involve disclosing their 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, totalling more than 5,000 companies around the globe.

Through its Reimagine strategy, Jaguar Land Rover is undergoing a deep transformation to deliver sustainability-rich modern luxury vehicles by decarbonising its entire value chain, adopting circular economy principles, and transitioning to fully electric product ranges by the end of the decade.

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 Jaguar Land Rover’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.”
