Jaguar Land Rover cut 13,000 tonnes of emissions

Cuts of a rather different kind in the luxury car market - and most welcome they are too...

"Jaguar Land Rover is probably not the first company that springs to mind when one is asked to think of green businesses.

The firm's two main brands are better known for their size and luxury than their green credentials. But internally the firm has a target to reduce CO2 emissions by a quarter over the next five years.

Jaguar Land Rover has removed more than 13,000 tonnes of emissions from its supply and delivery chain's annual carbon footprint through efficency measures over the past five years – a reduction of about 6.5 per cent.

The firm's supply and delivery chain is a huge operation, clocking up some four million road miles a year, on top of a million nautical miles and 54,000 rail miles, all to deliver some 250,000 vehicles annually."
