Jaguar Land Rover
Join date: January 2015
Jaguar Land Rover is the UK’s largest automotive manufacturing business, built around two iconic British car brands: Land Rover, the world’s leading manufacturer of premium all-terrain vehicles and Jaguar, one of the world’s premier luxury sports saloon and sports car marques.
Under the ownership of Tata Motors Limited, Jaguar Land Rover is transforming its business to realise the full potential of its brands and deliver profitable results. Driving the business is a world-class team of 32,000 people globally. In addition we support more than 210,000 UK jobs through the supply chain, dealer network and wider economy.
All of our cars are engineered and designed in Britain and while we have ambitious plans for global growth, the heart of the business remains in the UK. We have invested billions of pounds in our state-of-the-art production, research and development facilities. In fact, Jaguar Land Rover is the biggest UK investor in R&D in the manufacturing sector – ahead of British Aerospace and Rolls-Royce – and in the global top 100 for R&D spend. This investment, along with our on-going support of local communities and encouragement to get young people to seek jobs in engineering has led to Jaguar Land Rover winning the Responsible Business of the Year Award – an accolade we take great pride in achieving.
Operating responsibly is key for sustainable business.
We have ambitious plans for the future. We also recognise that we operate in a resource-constrained world. So we are evolving our business to adapt to these challenges, nurturing the resources and communities on which we depend. Not only does this reflect our commitment to being a good global citizen; This is intelligent business. A way of thinking that is fundamental to sustainable business growth.
Our 360 degree approach examines our vehicles and operations; as well as our work with suppliers, customers, employees and wider stakeholders – creating new partnerships and business practices.
We aim to:
- Demonstrate leadership in sustainable business practices in all our activities across the world: This includes achieving Carbon Neutral Manufacturing and Zero Waste across our operations by 2020.
- Create vehicles that meet our future customers’ needs with less environmental impact: This includes ensuring our vehicles are among the leaders for tailpipe CO2 emissions performance by 2020.
- Improve lives in our wider communities: This includes creating opportunities for 12 Million people by 2020 by leveraging our business strengths and resources to inspire and support others, harnessing new technologies & innovation.
- Engage our people, customers and partners in our Responsible Business vision: This includes achieving global recognition as a Responsible Business by 2020.
We’ve made great strides over the last five years, winning recognition both within and outside our industry. But there’s still more to do. Our exciting agenda will ensure that strong commercial performance is coupled with long-lasting benefits to our social and natural environments.
