For BMW, sustainability is at the core of everything they do -- striving to be the most sustainable automotive brand on the planet.The goal of achieving a completely climate-neutral business model by 2050 comes within reach. Although sustainability is a key buzzword in 2022, the topic itself is nothing new at the BMW Group. In fact, BMW began to establish sustainability as a central element of its corporate strategy as far back as the 1970s.

As early as the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, BMW converted a BMW 1602 into an electrically powered vehicle to chaperone the long-distance walkers and marathon runners as a support vehicle. A year later, BMW became the first automotive company ever to appoint an environmental officer, a person to lay the foundations of preventive environmental protection.From their past as champions of sustainability, to a future as environmental leaders. By 2030, the BMW Group will halve CO2 emissions per vehicle in the use phase. They are also planning to utilize up to 50 percent secondary materials, and the company will be focusing on further cooperative ventures for plastics recycling. The BMW Group has been purchasing aluminum produced by electricity from solar energy since the beginning of 2021. Aluminum production is particularly energy-intensive, so utilizing green electricity results in a significant reduction in CO2 emissions. Green power is fundamentally an effective lever to achieve the corporate goal of reducing CO2 emissions in the supplier network by 20 percent by 2030.

And a number of benchmarks have already been achieved. BMW has succeeded in reducing CO2 emissions per vehicle produced: 78 per cent lower in 2020 than in 2006. BMW vehicles are already currently 95 percent recyclable, and 90 percent of the high-voltage batteries can also be recycled. Furthermore, the BMW i Vision Circular offers a glimpse into what a car based on circularity could actually look like: a vehicle made of 100 percent recycled materials and is also 100 percent recyclable.The future is now.
