Munich, 21 March 2020 – Employees from more than 120 countries worldwide work together successfully at the BMW Group: people from different cultures, with different world views and religious beliefs. They work for the BMW Group in teams around the globe, developing creative ideas and innovative solutions for sustainable future mobility.

Diversity is the foundation of the BMW Group’s success.

For the BMW Group, knowledge of different languages and cultures not only reflects our global working environment, but is also crucial in the competition for new markets, customers and qualified young talent. "Diversity is the foundation of our success. A working environment free of prejudice, combined with respectful coexistence, are important requirements for this," said Ilka Horstmeier, member of the Board of Management of BMW AG responsible for Human Resources.

The BMW Group is also committed to tolerance, openness and diversity outside its own ranks. In 2011, the company launched a unique partnership with the United Nations Alliance of Civilisations (UNAOC) to promote international dialogue and intercultural understanding. The partnership recognises innovative projects with our Intercultural Innovation Award. The aim is to enable local initiatives to scale up to international platforms so they can contribute to greater prosperity and tolerance in society. The initiatives recognised by the BMW Group and UNAOC have already supported 3.6 million people in 112 countries worldwide.

Ilka Horstmeier: “Together with UNAOC, we want to draw attention to cross-cultural projects around the world and enrich society with innovative ideas. In addition to financial support, we also offer award-winners the chance to leverage the BMW Group’s core expertise to successfully develop their projects.”

To advance the topic of diversity in German corporate culture, the BMW Group joined the Diversity Charter & Association back in 2012. The Charter, under the patronage of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, has so far been signed by more than 3,400 companies and public institutions. The BMW Group is also actively driving the issue in other countries – for example, in the UK, where the company is a member of ENEI, the UK's leading employer network.

A video outlining the BMW Group's position has been released to coincide with the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination and can be found on the following BMW Group social media channels:

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
