About our client
Jaguar Land Rover is the UK’s largest car manufacturer, producing more than half a million vehicles each year. It has worked with ClimateCare since 2007, investing in climate and development projects that offset manufacturing emissions while supporting smart technology that transforms lives. The company was rated the UK’s best employer by Bloomberg in 2016 and is in the top 20 of The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers.
What we did
ClimateCare designed and delivered an integrated climate neutral programme for Jaguar Land Rover, identifying opportunities to invest in projects that improve quality of life and cut carbon emissions. As well as maintaining climate neutral manufacturing, the programme gave the company’s staff a unique opportunity to get involved in delivering results.
We developed a new initiative to distribute LifeStraw water filters to schools, complementing existing support for safe water projects. These filters are gravity-fed and make water safe to drink without boiling, reducing the risk of contracting waterborne disease – Kenya’s third biggest killer. Using locally appropriate, smart technology not only achieves sustainable results at scale, but also reflects Jaguar Land Rover’s focus on innovation.
The programme engaged staff directly too. Seven employees – selected from 3,500 applicants – completed our thorough training programme before taking part in Jaguar Land Rover’s Join the Experience: Kenya 2015 project. Joining the ClimateCare team in Kenya, they worked together to make sure more school children could drink safe water. They helped install LifeStraw filters at 19 schools, trained pupils to use and maintain them and highlighted the impact unsafe water had on young people and their families.
