We at Jaguar Land rover are immensely proud to have been granted all three royal Warrants and to have received so many Queen’s awards over the years. each one has been a great honour and an inspiration to do even more. Last year we were delighted to receive The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development, but far from resting on our laurels, we have taken our environmental innovation to new

Jaguar Land Rover. We are driven by the desire to produce increasingly world-class, light- weight vehicles, but we also want to be world leading in how we build them. Innovative projects such as REALCAR demonstrate our commitment to meeting our sustainability challenges head-on. Its success so far marks a significant step towards our goal of having up to 75% recycled aluminium content in our vehicle body structures by 2020.” It is cutting edge technology such as this which has seen Jaguar Land Rover grow into the largest car manufacturer in the United Kingdom, embodying our three core beliefs: putting


levels. Through our REALCAR project we now lead the world in aluminium recycling and manufacture. This Jaguar Land Rover-led research project, part funded by Innovate UK, saw more than £7 million spent to install intricate segregation systems at our plants in Halewood, Castle Bromwich and Solihull, which capture and distribute aluminium scrap for re-melting, reducing waste and retaining higher quality and value in the material. The results of these new processes have been startling. In 2015 alone we saved 50,000 tonnes of aluminium, the equivalent weight of 10,000 African elephants or enough to make 10 billion soft drink cans. In environmental terms this equates to a saving of 500,000 tonnes of carbon, the equivalent of 625,000 trips to the edge of space and back.

the customer first, manufacturing great cars and leading the way in environmental innovation. Our royal accolades are more than just a source of great pride for everyone at Jaguar Land Rover. They are also an inspiration to go above and beyond, pushing the boundaries of technology, engineering and design to make Britain proud.

We have achieved this by incorporating aluminium into the vehicle’s body, which reduces its weight, thereby improving fuel efficiency and reducing its environmental footprint. The Jaguar XE is the first car in the world to be made with a body manufactured through this process. It is also the latest example of how Jaguar Land Rover is using cutting-edge technology to improve the customer experience, as well as giving them the thrill of driving a dynamic, lightweight aluminium car, and an opportunity to make a sustainable choice.
