Our goals

Our goals.

The BMW Group aspires to be the most successful, most sustainable premium manufacturer for individual mobility. To achieve this ambitious goal, we are creating more and more, increasingly comprehensive sustainability solutions. At the same time, we aim to meet our responsibility for compliance with social and ethical standards. It is goals like these that our Board of Management and top managers are measured against. Because for the BMW Group, one thing is certain: We aspire to lead the way in sustainability. That is why we are taking responsibility here and now and putting these issues at the centre of our future strategic direction.

Our clear claim is that the greenest electric vehicle comes from BMW. We are reducing CO₂ emissions per vehicle over the entire value chain. This is what sets the BMW Group apart.

Our declared goals.

Our concrete goals are focused on reducing CO₂ emissions, increasing resource efficiency and substantially improving social and environmental standards. For this reason, we already established clearly defined targets in July 2020 that we intend to implement by 2030. The spectrum ranges from areas such as CO₂ reduction and electromobility, through circularity and environmental and social standards, all the way to social responsibility. What unites all these topics is our strong commitment to achieving the goals we have set together.

CO₂ reduction

We are focusing our efforts on realising another, even bigger reduction in CO₂ emissions of over 40 percent by 2030 – spanning the entire lifecycle, from the supply chain, through production, to the end of the use phase. Our goal is for the BMW Group business model to be climate-neutral no later than 2050.

We are focusing on massive expansion of electromobility. Around ten million fully-electric BMW Group vehicles should be on the roads by 2030. Reaching this goal will involve all areas of the BMW Group – from production to charging station infrastructure.

Recyclable material


Our vehicles are developed in such a way that their components can be fully recovered and reused. We call this concept “design for recycling”. It means we are able to utilise valuable materials from the recycling process and thereby avoid consuming primary materials.

Environmental and social standards

As a global company, we are committed to the highest environmental and social standards – within our own company and in cooperation with our suppliers worldwide. Our own guidelines, as well as international human rights and occupational safety conventions, are set out in the BMW Group Sustainability Standard for the Supplier Network.

Social responsibility

We take responsibility for our associates, as well as for society as a whole. We provide future-proof jobs and promote a healthy and diverse working environment. We engage in volunteer activities and support regional commitment in the communities where we operate.
