LIFE CYCLE IMPACT
To reduce the overall environmental impact of our products and operations we use Life Cycle Assessment to inform future research and product developments.
TREATING WASTE AS A VALUABLE RESOURCE
Cutting waste and reducing water use are priorities. Increasingly we recognise the value of our resources by seeking innovative ways to reuse or recycle them.
REDUCING OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
We are constantly investigating new ways to tackle our carbon footprint as we strive towards a 30% reduction in our emissions across our manufacturing operations by 2020.
CREATING OPPORTUNITIES FOR 12 MILLION PEOPLE
We support local and global communities with humanitarian & health, education, design, technology & talent, environment & conservation projects through our 2020 Global Corporate Social Responsibility programme.
As well as developing sustainable manufacturing operations around the world and ensuring our facilities meet the highest global standards, we are taking a whole new approach to maximise efficiency and minimise waste. We have also made great strides in cutting water usage, energy consumption and waste to landfill.
How do you build more vehicles while creating fewer emissions? It’s a challenge we’re continuing to respond to by modifying everything from our factory processes and logistics to investing billions in new products and facilities, research and development. Find out more in our Sustainability Report.
We offset 100% of our manufacturing assembly emissions and use carbon finance to invest in local projects around the world. For example, we supported the distribution of innovative LifeStraw water filters to over 12 00 000 people in western Kenya, meaning they no longer have to boil water to make it safe for drinking.
OUR LIFE CYCLE APPROACH
The valuable insights from our Life Cycle Assessment process have helped us create the most sustainable generation of Land Rover vehicles yet.
By reducing the weight of a vehicle’s body and components, we can make our cars more efficient and deliver the outstanding performance our customers expect.
USING MORE SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS
As a responsible business, we have put in place a long term goal of using sustainable materials such as natural rubber, recycled aluminium and plastics.
DESIGNING FOR FUEL EFFICIENCY
We’re reducing our vehicles’ fuel consumption by developing more efficient powertrains, hybrid and electric solutions and lightweight body structures.
REACHING VULNERABLE PEOPLE
Land Rover works with Red Cross Societies globally in projects as diverse as disaster preparedness to helping people in times of economic difficulties. For example Land Rover is working with the British Red Cross to provide day-to-day, practical help for vulnerable people living alone in isolated communities who face real difficulties, particularly after a stay in hospital.
