PREMIUM THROUGH RESPONSIBILITY.
I firmly believe the fight against climate change and how we use resources will decide the future of our society – and of the BMW Group. That is why we are taking responsibility here and now and making these issues central to our strategic direction. This new strategic direction will be anchored in all divisions – from administration and purchasing to development and production, all the way to sales. We are taking sustainability to the next level.

FACTS AND NUMBERS.
CO₂ REDUCTION OF BMW GROUP AUTOMOBILE COMPARED TO BASE YEAR 1995.
To be the most successful and sustainable premium manufacturer for individual mobility - that is our aspiration. Our company is committed to a course that is in line with the 1.5 degree target for limiting global warming. To this end, the BMW Group was the first German car manufacturer to join the Business Ambition for 1.5°C of the Science Based Targets Initiative and is committed to the goal of complete climate neutrality across the entire value chain by 2050 at the latest. We also set ourselves clear targets for CO₂ reduction by 2030: looking at the entire life cycle of a vehicle, including production and upstream supply chain, the BMW Group plans to reduce CO₂ emissions per vehicle by at least 40 per cent.
INVESTMENT IN FURTHER EDUCATION & TRAINING.
279 Mio. €
370 Mio. €
373 Mio. €
Our associates are our biggest strength. We believe that supporting and developing them is an important aspect of sustainability. That is why lifelong learning is an integral part of day-to-day work at the BMW Group. With a wide range of options for continuing education, especially in innovation areas such as digitalisation and electrification, we are investing in the performance capabilities and employability of our more than 120,000 colleagues – today, and in the future.
ANNUAL SALES ELECTRIC AND ELECTRIFIED VEHICLES.
Annual sales of electric and electrified BMW vehicles continue to grow from year to year. We are pleased about this, of course, but the fight against climate change will require further efforts – not to mention, ambitious targets. Massive expansion of e-mobility will play a key role in this: Based on current market forecasts, the BMW Group expects at least 50 percent of its global sales to come from fully-electric vehicles in 2030. Over the next ten years or so, the company will release a total of about ten million fully-electric vehicles onto the roads.

The BMW Group’s actions are characterised by continuous further development of electrified vehicles. Sustainable processes in all areas of the company promote safe and sustainable expansion of electromobility.Learn more
Effective climate protection needs circularity. Conscious use of primary materials plays a key role in this for the BMW Group. We consider options for economical use of resources and recoverability during the design process and product development. Our guiding principle for the future is “secondary first”.Learn more
ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL STANDARDS.
At the BMW Group, responsibility is also about protecting nature’s finite resources. We are committed to the highest environmental and social standards at our own sites and throughout the supply chain.Learn more
