The BMW i3 provides an excellent example of this: From raw material extraction through vehicle operation to recycling, this car meets measurable sustainability targets. Based on an electricity mix made up of purely renewable energies, its greenhouse gas potential is more than 50 % lower than that of conventional automobiles.
In addition to electric drive trains, we also rely on innovative efficiency technologies to optimise the environmental profile of all our models.
In view of climate change and the scarcity of resources, we want to further reduce the CO₂ emissions of our vehicles.
Product responsibility is about more than just safety for us. We focus not only on the protection of our customers, but also the safety of other road users. Our driver assistance systems monitor what is happening on the road and intervene in critical situations. In addition to the safety features built into our vehicles, our driver safety training also helps customers stay safe on the roads.

Based on our Efficient Dynamics development strategy, the BMW Group reduces the energy requirements of every vehicle through intelligent lightweight design, innovations in energy management and consistently optimised aerodynamics. These efficiency technologies are constantly being expanded and refined.
Between 1995 and 2016, we were able to reduce the CO₂ emissions of our newly sold vehicles in Europe (EU-28) by 41%.
The average fleet CO2 emissions per kilometre worldwide decreased in 2016 by 2% to 144 g CO2 / km. Average CO2 emissions in the USA were 174 g CO2 / km and 164 g CO2 / km in China. The regional differences in fleet use are a result of differing consumer behaviour, which is in turn due to a variety of factors. These include differing tax situations for different types of vehicle engines, as well as local consumer preferences for diesel vehicles or specific types of vehicles such as SUVs.
