JAGUAR LAND ROVER TO PROVIDE FLEET OF ALL-ELECTRIC VEHICLES AT COP26 CLIMATE SUMMIT
Jaguar Land Rover
Jaguar Land Rover is partnering with COP26 ahead of the vital climate change summit in Glasgow in November.
As the official Transport Partner for the World’s Leaders at COP26, a fleet of electrified Jaguar Land Rover vehicles – including the multi award-winning Jaguar I-PACE, will deliver zero-emission modern luxury transport for leaders and their teams at the conference.
Modern, sustainable luxury is at the heart of our new global strategy, Reimagine. In February, we set out our aims to achieve zero tailpipe emissions by 2036, and net zero carbon emissions across our supply chain, products and operations by 2039.
Recently, we also committed to a 1.5 degree aligned, science-based target to reduce emissions in line with the Paris Agreement and supporting the UNFCCC Race to Zero.
Jaguar Land Rover has a successful history in providing vehicles for similar events, including the recent G7 summit in the UK. The vehicles for COP26 have all been sourced from existing fleets in the UK, helping ensure the carbon footprint remains low.
COP26 President-Designate and former Secretary of State for Business, Alok Sharma, said: “Jaguar Land Rover is an iconic British brand with a proven track record in VIP transport. They are showing climate leadership in their field with award winning electric vehicles, and I am delighted these will be used by world leaders in Glasgow.
“I look forward to working with Jaguar Land Rover and all our Partners ahead of the summit as we ensure a successful and inclusive COP26.”
Thierry Bolloré, Jaguar Land Rover Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are delighted to partner with COP26 and provide a fleet of all-electric Jaguar I-PACE performance SUVs to deliver zero-emission transport at the summit.
“Sustainability is at the core of our business strategy, Reimagine, which enables us to focus on becoming net carbon zero by 2039 as the creator of the world’s most desirable modern luxury vehicles.”
