Jaguar Land Rover Factory Named Low Carbon Economic Area

Nowadays everybody talks about green technologies, CO2 emissions, efficiency and renewable energy. And a lot of people seem to think that cars are the ultimate polluter, but that’s not really the case. China is the best example that an industry which does not give a crap about the environment is not the solution.

Most automakers invest a lot of money and energy in creating environmentally friendly plants and they’re very proud of it. In such a situation is Jaguar Land Rover, which is very happy that the Midlands, where it currently has a factory, has been declared a low carbon economic area for advanced automotive engineering.

The good news continues, as the JLR group also received confirmation that Advantage West Midlands will invest 19.5 million pounds in a Low Carbon Vehicle Technology (LCVT) Programme to promote the development of specialist low carbon engineering skills and vehicle technologies.

Jaguar Land Rover head of research, Tony Harper, said: "Environmental innovation is a keystone of Jaguar Land Rover's business philosophy. Jaguar Land Rover is investing hundreds of millions into technology research, development and innovation to reduce CO2 and emissions as well as our use of natural resources.

"But we are also clear that sustainability can only be achieved by private and public sector partnerships, which is why the AWM's new Low Carbon Vehicle Technology programme is such good news."

As many governments around the world continue to invest in low carbon vehicle development, UK will continue to keep funding such programs.
