Jaguar Land Rover is continuing to drive its environmental performance by attaining the latest ISO 14001 standard.
The latest Environment Management Standard certification
focuses on organisational leadership including how environmental factors are
integrated into the strategic planning of the business.
Alongside the introduction of electrified powertrains to the
vehicle line up, the wider Jaguar Land Rover management system has been
perfected to attain this globally recognised certification. This includes
analysing the environmental effects of each vehicle’s life cycle from inception
Jaguar Land Rover has also worked closely with the Carbon
Disclosure Project to look at supply chain impact, by assessing the suppliers’
carbon emissions and how to cut them back further.
Steve Slocket, UK Operations Environmental Compliance
Manager, said: “It’s fantastic that Jaguar Land Rover has reached carbon
neutral status for its major UK operations. This is thanks to lots of factors,
including our engine plants solar panel array – which is one of the largest in
“Electricity was responsible for about half of our vehicle
manufacturing carbon emissions so investing in green electricity suppliers has
helped reduce the company’s footprint massively.”
Nine Jaguar Land Rover sites have attained the ISO
14001 standard – Castle Bromwich, Halewood, Solihull, the EMC, Fen End, Oxford
Road, Gaydon, Whitley and Itatiaia in Brazil. The production facility in Nitra
is currently undergoing an initial review for the accreditation with a full
audit expected to be carried out in the near future.
