As a Sustainability Commodity Specialist, you will play a key role in developing and standardising CO2e measurement across Jaguar Land Rover’s supply base.

From the outset, you will have a unique opportunity to transform and shape Jaguar Land Rover’s sustainability strategy by developing a data-led approach to supplier carbon management.




As a Sustainability Specialist, you will collate supplier, material and commodity abatement curves, supporting the commodity leads and purchasing verticals with supplier sustainability. You shall report internal corporate CO2e emissions for Scope 3 – purchased goods and services. This role will involve market research and scanning on commodity decarbonisation best practise & suppliers and emerging innovation. You will support the sustainability initiatives in collaboration with Product Sustainability and the wider business, ultimately ensuring the product targets are met and commodity strategies are aligned.

  • Experience of working with Carbon measurement data or similar

  • Excellent knowledge and experience of key Supply Chain issues and challenges including globalisation, product and process digitisation and supply chain strategy development

  • A strong communicator with the ability to communicate effectively with key stakeholders to influence cross-functional alignment

  • Degree qualified or equivalent experience
