Britain's largest car maker commits to buy all electricty from renewables

Jaguar Land Rover Automotive plc, the UK's largest car manufacturer, has sealed an agreement with EDF Energy to buy all its electricity from renewable sources up to March 2020.

Jaguar Land Rover's electricity supply is backed by Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGO), meaning a proportion of EDF Energy's renewable energy is ring-fenced specifically for the company. The REGO scheme certifies the proportion of supply that comes from renewable generation – 100 per cent in Jaguar Land Rover's case.

Ian Harnett, Executive Director of Human Resources and Global Purchasing at Jaguar Land Rover, said: "Our future is low-carbon, clean and efficient. Our programme to reduce our burden on the National Grid doesn't end here: we seek continual improvements, both in how we can reduce energy consumption further and how to minimise our carbon emissions.

Jaguar Land Rover's renewables purchasing programme operates within a wider context of sustainability. The business's latest annual Sustainability report, published this month, shows the business achieved:

• 32% reduction in European fleet average tailpipe CO2 emissions (2015 compared to 2007)
• More than 38% reduction in energy per vehicle produced, compared to 2007 (UK manufacturing)
• Building on research and development in electric, hybrid and conventional powertrains, Jaguar invested over £3billion in technology, design, engineering and manufacturing
• In one year alone (to April 2016) Jaguar reclaimed more than 50,000 tonnes of press shop aluminium waste - enough to make around 200,000 Jaguar XE bodyshells. Giving all that aluminium another life has also prevented more than half a million tonnes of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere.
• New buildings designed to achieve the highest standards such as the Building Research Establishment's BREEAM 'Excellent' standard. BREEAM encourages designers and others to think about low carbon and act accordingly, minimising the energy demands created by a building – even before considering energy efficiency and low-carbon technologies.

In 2016 Jaguar Land Rover sold more than 583,000 vehicles, up 20% on the previous year. Of the total, Jaguar sold 148,730 vehicles and Land Rover sold 434,583 vehicles. The company is one of the UK's largest exporters and generates around 80% of its revenue from exports.
