Our future relies on finding ways to be more environmentally efficient. We continue to systematically reduce our impact by assessing our footprint across the whole life cycle and value chain of our products. Globally, we have already doubled production while halving emissions from our manufacturing sites. This focus on improvement has delivered significant milestones, such as our Carbon Neutral status in the UK. We report our progress transparently, informed by leading sustainability framework the GRI (Global Reporting Index) Core standard.
Our Advanced Product Creation Centre
The advanced product creation centre brings design, engineering and production purchasing under one roof for the first time in Jaguar Land Rover’s history. Gaydon’s new offices are rated in the top 10 per cent of most sustainable non-domestic buildings in the UK. Up to 20 per cent of its energy will come from almost 3,000m² of photovoltaic solar panels on the roof, and the remainder from 100 per cent renewable sources. The same glazing technology as the Eden Project has been used to bring natural light into the building wherever possible and make it more energy efficient.
