Jaguar Land Rover's plant in Itatiaia, Brazil has become the first of the company's plants to undergo reassessment to the new Environmental Management Standard.
The new standard aims to drive continual improvement and pushes greater responsibility and ownership at a senior level in our facilities. The standard specifies the requirements of an environmental management system for companies who seek to establish, implement, maintain and continuously improve a framework with the aim to manage its environmental responsibilities in a manner that contributes to the ‘environmental pillar’ of sustainability. For Jaguar Land Rover the system also adds value to support compliance and if integrated fully drives costs savings for the business. The Brazil plant received excellent feedback on the engagement of the management team and its understanding of environmental issues. The site has recently transitioned onto the on line EMS toolkit which supports ownership by those working on the facilities.
Jaguar Land Rover has held ISO14001 accreditation since 1998, with Certified Environmental management systems in place at all production facilities globally as well as product development facilities.
Overall this was an excellent effort by the local Brazil team supported through the central sustainability function.
