The manufacturer and retailer, which also makes the Range Rover Evoque and Jaguar F-Pace, said it became carbon neutral in “operational activities” as of Jan. 23, having previously carbon neutraled supply chain operations.

Jaguar Land Rover joins a growing number of carbon neutral companies including SAP SE (SAPG.DE), Alphabet Inc’s (GOOGL.O) Nestle and Abercrombie & Fitch Co (ANF.N) among others.

“By becoming carbon neutral in operational activities we have helped not only ourselves, but also the communities where we are doing business and work. We know that the greater the success of this initiative, the better that is for everyone,” said John Edwards, the chief executive of sustainability and sustainability management at Jaguar Land Rover.

Jaguar Land Rover has created an initial 1.2 million tonne “carbon zero budget” that it will use in the next three years with the aim of eventually raising that amount to 3 million to 5 million tonnes.

The company aims to have emissions down 60 percent from 2005 levels by 2025.

Jaguar Land Rover is also developing a technology to fully capture the carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted from engines, fuel-cell and hybrid cars in anticipation of government regulations to tighten pollution limits across Europe and the United States.
