We’ve worked hard on our engine development over the last 15 years to deliver significant improvements around air quality objectives.
Engines today are as much as 98% less polluting than those manufactured in 2000 when one considers Particulate Matter and NOx. Indian engine legislation will bring engines in Indian machines up to the same standard as in Europe within the next two years.
Our strategy to drive our products to Net Zero includes multiple approaches. Find our core innovations below.
Firstly we continue to drive the efficiency of our products across all product groups.
The efficiency of diesel fuelled products can help to reduce carbon emissions in the immediate future and unlocks the use of alternative propulsion. Our LiveLink software has helped us validate these improvements in the field and has been invaluable in helping us quantify our Scope 3 emissions.Find out more here
We have introduced battery-electric machines across a range of our smaller products, which are suited to battery energy capacities.
Whilst battery technology has the potential to significantly reduce carbon emissions in use, a socially and environmentally sound supply chain and recycling infrastructure are essential.Find out more here
The third but possibly most important strand of our product power strategy is hydrogen.
Our hydrogen combustion engine will allow our advanced engine technology to be used for decades to come, but with the potential for zero carbon emissions in use due to the possibility of entirely renewable hydrogen fuel.Find out more here
HVO offers the potential for reduced carbon emissions in the short term.
Hydro treated Vegetable Oil (HVO) is available as a drop-in fuel for a wide range of JCB engines and can lower carbon emissions as long as an environmentally sustainable supply can be assured.Find out more here
