At Land Rover Dallas we are excited to announce Jaguar Land Rover’s partnership with sustainability experts, ClimateCare! ClimateCare’s goal is to being safe and clean solar technology to rural communities in Kenya. The program, ‘Lighting up Lives,’ specifically aims to target children and their education.
Jaguar Land Rover believes that renewable solar powered energy is an affordable alternative to the use of kerosene light. Kerosene can create hazardous indoor pollutants which makes it one of the largest causes of premature death in all of Africa. Jaguar Land Rover believes that implementing ‘Lighting up Lives’ will improve the education in the children of the rural communities, which will then give women greater opportunities to learn and work, and the living conditions will be safer and healthier.
Many of the children in these communities can only work on their schoolwork during daylight hours because they have no access to any sort of electricity. With the implementation of the ‘Lighting up Lives’ program, children are able to complete their schoolwork and be able to spend more time looking upon the faces of their families.
“This exciting new venture is exactly the type of program that Jaguar Land Rover wants to lead on in the future,” Helen McLintock, Jaguar Land Rover Director, said. “Using technology for good and supporting the power of engineering to improve lives and help to build a cleaner future. Our purpose is to make responsible business relevant to everyone. By sharing our skills, our technology, our people and our passions we can make a difference to people’s lives and prosperity.”
Recently, Jaguar Land Rover announced they would be moving to 100% renewable energy at all of their United Kingdom facilities. Keeping to their word, Jaguar Land Rover has installed the largest group of rooftop solar panels in the United Kingdom at their Engine Manufacturing Center.
We are proud to be a part of Jaguar Land Rover and their goal to make the world a cleaner and more sustainable place to live. We aim to make a difference, not only in our own community, but in communities around the world.
