Going Green, BMW Group Commits to Renewable Resources

 

On December 10th, 2018 at the UN Climate Change Conference held in Katowice, Poland, the BMW Group announced to the world that the German-based company is already utilizing 100% renewable resources in Europe with plans to fully switch over globally by the year 2020. Ultimately, the BMW Group hopes to eliminate carbonization entirely from the mobility sector. The BMW Group and the UN Climate Change Conferences have been in partnership together since 1992, with the BMW Group serving as the headline sponsor of the ninth Sustainable Innovation Forum in particular. The premiere event of the UN Climate Change Conference, the Sustainable Innovation Forum provides business owners, politicians, and experts from different sectors the opportunity to discuss sustainable development and its challenges on a much grander scale.

Focusing primarily on the circular economy, energy transition, sustainable mobility, and climate finance during the Sustainable Innovation Forum, the BMW group advocated the importance of maintaining sustainability goals and described solutions to illustrate how the mobility sector can work to significantly decarbonize. BMW stakeholders also had an opportunity to discuss the future of BMW with the BMW Group during the 2018 Stakeholder Dialogue Series called “Cities in Progress.” This series has made its way around the world, stopping in Los Angeles, Shenzhen, China, Melbourne, Australia, and Rotterdam, Netherlands, as BMW stakeholders shared their desires and expectations of the BMW Group to provide not only new mobility services and features, but also to craft an automotive portfolio that is primarily emission-free. Committed to sustainability, efficiency, and decarbonization, the future of the BMW Group sure looks bright...and green!
