As our longest serving Corporate Benefactor, Jaguar Land Rover has worked with the Society on fieldwork and expeditions for more than 40 years, providing vehicles, expertise, funding and training, alongside supporting outreach projects. In recent years this support has been at the forefront of innovation in enabling the use of geo-related technology in remote locations, supporting the development of geographical knowledge, as well as capacity-building by working in partnership with locally-led projects. You can discover more about past projects supported by the Jaguar Land Rover Go Beyond bursary projects here.
The Society sits alongside Tusk and the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement as one of three humanitarian and conservation partners that Jaguar Land Rover supports to make positive change. Jaguar Land Rover vehicles enable photographers to capture extraordinary images that help make a difference to our understanding of the natural world and the Society is delighted to have the support and involvement of Jaguar Land Rover with Earth Photo. We believe photography and film have a profound international influence and that images speak powerfully to viewers and convey meaning and emotion beyond the barriers of language. Developing our partnership by looking to the future and the changing ways in which vehicle technology will help documentary photographers and filmmakers to achieve their goals marks a new chapter in our long-term relationship with Jaguar Land Rover.

Through its Reimagine strategy defining the future plans and commitment to the environment, Jaguar Land Rover is delivering a sustainability-rich vision of modern luxury by design. The business is transforming to become carbon net zero across its supply chain, products, and operations by 2039 and has set a roadmap to reduce emissions across its own operations and value chains by 2030 through approved, science-based targets. Electrification is central to this strategy and the Range Rover, Discovery and Defender collections will each have a pure electric model before the end of the decade, while Jaguar will be entirely electric.
A British company at heart, Jaguar Land Rover has two design and engineering sites, three vehicle manufacturing facilities, an engine manufacturing centre, and a battery assembly centre in the UK. Globally, the business has vehicle plants in China, Slovakia, Austria, India and Brazil, and seven technology hubs.
