12 Feb 2020 | International News : U.K.

Jaguar Land Rover has completed a zero emissions tour of its U.K. manufacturing and product development facilities to celebrate its operations being certified as carbon neutral for the second consecutive year.

With a 470km range, the Jaguar I-PACE comfortably completed the 228km tour of Jaguar Land Rover's facilities on one charge
An all electric Jaguar I-PACE completed a zero emissions tour from Gaydon to Halewood, visiting the company's Whitley headquarters, the home of Land Rover in Solihull, the newly-electrified Castle Bromwich manufacturing facility in Birmingham and the Engine Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton.

The Carbon Trust re-certification is part of Jaguar Land Rover's journey to Destination Zero after it was originally achieved two years ahead of a commitment to operate carbon neutral U.K. manufacturing by 2020, highlighting Jaguar Land Rover's pledge to zero emissions and its ambition to make societies safer and healthier, and the environment cleaner.

The journey began after the Jaguar I-PACE was charged at Gaydon using one of 166 smart chargers powered by solar panels fitted to the new Advanced Product Creation Centre. With a 470km range, the Jaguar I-PACE comfortably completed the entire 228km route on one charge.

Energy saving projects throughout Jaguar Land Rover's facilities have brought down its operating CO2 emissions by 74% since 2007
Jaguar Land Rover was certified on 31 January 2020 for the second consecutive year by the Carbon Trust, confirming business operations have met the internationally recognised PAS 2060 standard for carbon neutrality between April 2018 and March 2019 across its vehicle manufacturing assembly operations and product development sites. Together, these sites represent 77% of Jaguar Land Rover's global vehicle production.

To achieve carbon neutral status Jaguar Land Rover has invested in energy-saving projects such as solar panels and LED lighting. In the U.K., operating CO2 emissions are down 74% versus 2007 and the energy used to build a vehicle has reduced by 37% during the same period.
