For us, sustainability is about shaping the future of the BMW Group. In 2016, the company celebrated its 100th centenary. This important milestone provided a unique opportunity for us to look to the future and to present our ideas for the mobility of tomorrow – with our four Vision Vehicles.
We view sustainability – not just in our vehicles, but throughout the entire value chain – as a basic requirement for tomorrow’s individual mobility and ensuring its social acceptability.
We believe the only way to achieve success in the long term is through sustainable action.
We remain committed to the principles of the United Nations Global Compact and have systematically implemented its Ten Principles at all locations worldwide since 2001. Our sustainability strategy also supports the Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the United Nations in autumn 2015.
Sustainability has not just become a success factor for business. It is increasingly a question of individual lifestyle. A sustainable lifestyle is viewed as a personal enrichment and represents a conscious decision for many people worldwide. Today, emissions and the raw materials and other resources used in production are a consideration in many customer purchases.
The BMW Group has therefore set itself ten long-term sustainability goals encompassing the entire value chain.
Our vehicles with Efficient Dynamics technology, plug-in hybrid drivetrain or electric engine – combined with innovative mobility services – lay the foundation for our business success. Our production focuses on the efficient use of resources, which helps the environment and lowers costs. Our wide variety of different community, social and cultural projects around the world also make an important contribution to securing the company’s long-term reputation.
As we work to reduce the CO2 emissions of our vehicle fleet, electro-mobility will play a significant role. Our Strategy NUMBER ONE > NEXT underlines our strong commitment to electrified drivetrains. We will be increasing the share of electrified models across all brands and model series. To date, we have already sold more than 100,000 electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids. We now aim to achieve this same figure in 2017 alone. In this way, we are helping reduce greenhouse-gas emissions and improving air quality.
One of our tasks is to rethink urban mobility. For this reason, our experts reached out to stakeholders in different cities around the globe last year to discuss specific challenges and possible solutions. Input from our stakeholders is constantly fed into our strategy process.
We are responding to the individual mobility requirements of people in cities with innovative solutions, like our DriveNow and ReachNow car-sharing services. These offerings will be expanded as part of Strategy NUMBER ONE > NEXT.
For the BMW Group, this is “year one” after the centenary. We aim to succeed with our business model for premium mobility and premium services in the future. Sustainability is therefore an integral part of our thinking and actions.
This approach is in line with our values of trust, openness, appreciation, responsibility and transparency. It is anchored in our Strategy NUMBER ONE > NEXT and reflected in our efficient value creation and emotional products – in the interests of our customers, all our associates and our partners in society and business around the world.
