The Big Zero report

Jaguar Land Rover will provide a fleet of electric vehicles (EVs) for world leaders attending the climate change summit COP26 in Glasgow later this year.

The company said the fleet will include the SUV Jaguar I-PACE.

The manufacturer aims to achieve zero tailpipe emissions by 2036, and net zero carbon dioxide emissions across its supply chain, products and operations three years later.

COP26 President-Designate Alok Sharma said: “Jaguar Land Rover is an iconic British brand with a proven track record.

“They are showing climate leadership in their field with award-winning EVs, and I am delighted these will be used by world leaders in Glasgow.

The fleet is being sourced from existing stock in the UK, helping to keep carbon footprints low this November.”
