Jaguar Land Rover is encouraging its global supply chain to meet sustainability targets approved by the Science Based Targets (SBTi) initiative. to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and facilitate carbon neutrality across Jaguar Land Rover’s supply chain, products and operations by 2039.
Jaguar Land Rover has decided to encourage its Tier 1 supplier network (products, services and logistics) to join its 2030 targets, asking them to set out their decarbonisation path, document it transparently and demonstrate progress toward your goals. To do this, they will need to publish their carbon emissions reports and collaborate with their own supply chain to achieve the same reductions. These requirements have been carried over to Jaguar Land Rover’s supply network, which is made up of more than 5,000 companies around the world.
Barbara Bergmeier, Executive Director of Industrial Operations at Jaguar Land Roverstated: “Jaguar Land Rover’s industrial strategy is driven by commitments to the SBTi and the goal of achieving carbon neutrality across the supply chain by 2039. This is a very ambitious plan that we will only achieve successfully complete if we work together, which is why we are encouraging our suppliers to join us on this exciting and challenging journey. We will strengthen existing relationships so that all parties can achieve meaningful and measurable goals.”
