The CDP Climate Score is widely recognised among experts and reflects the highest degree of transparency in connection with implemented climate-protection measures. These include ambitious objectives and emissions reductions, as well as verification of reported data. The listing recognises the credibility and, above all, the effectiveness, of the measures introduced by the company in response to or to combat climate change.
Ursula Mathar, head of Sustainability and Environmental Protection at the BMW Group: “The BMW Group is delighted with its strong performance in the CDP rating. Climate protection remains a central theme of our sustainability strategy. It is especially important for a premium automobile manufacturer to strive for continuous progress in emissions from its products and production systems.”
Sustainability is implemented throughout the BMW Group’s value chain. In 2001, the BMW Group committed itself to the United Nations Environment Programme, the UN Global Compact and the Cleaner Production Declaration. It was also the first company in the automotive industry to appoint an environmental officer back in 1973. Today, the Sustainability Board, comprising all members of the Board of Management, defines the strategic alignment through binding targets. Continuous development of this sustainability strategy is an important element.
