Sustainability News.

This city of more than a million people in the Lombardy region of Italy certainly had a lot to offer the BMW Group Stakeholder Dialogue. Milan is not only a leader in car-sharing, but also boasts a highly-efficient public transport network. The stakeholders and students invited to the event all agreed on one thing: Electric mobility is the city’s future!

The BMW Group has hosted three stakeholder dialogues a year with sustainability experts worldwide since 2011. The 2017 Dialogue in Milan was the first to be held in Italy. The visit of Joschka Fischer, former German Vice-Chancellor and Foreign Minister, was a particular highlight. In his keynote speech the evening before the event, Fischer also underlined the importance of regular dialogue between companies and representatives from cities to identify trends early and face new challenges.

New mobility solutions are high on the agenda in Milan. With 370,000 users and 2,000 vehicles, the country’s second largest city is already a leader in car-sharing, for example. The public transport system is also so good that the stakeholders present were confident that the municipality will be able to ensure sustainable mobility over the coming years. However, they do not expect there to be sufficient funding to expand public transport to the point where it could meet the city’s mobility needs alone.

A blend of public and individual transportation would therefore appear to be the ideal solution. Top of the list was a combination of public transport, pedestrian traffic and bicycle and car rental models. It is important to use environmentally-friendly, low-emission technology: 67 per cent of those participating favoured a move towards all-electric road traffic by 2025 to improve air quality in the city.

The representatives from the worlds of politics, business and associations also discussed other topics with BMW experts, including autonomous driving, flexible parking fees, additional ride-hailing services and necessary and possible incentives for electro-mobility, as well as data protection, improving road safety and alternative financing concepts.

In summary: The stakeholders found Milan to be a progressive city that is focusing on alternative mobility solutions and will continue to provide inhabitants with an efficient, sustainable transport network with attractive options in the future.
