Contained media data:

For the fourth consecutive year the BMW Group is sector leader in the Dow Jones
Sustainability Index World.

The SAM Group published its latest evaluation for the Dow Jones Sustainability
Indexes (DJSI) today. For the fourth year in a row the BMW Group leads its
sector, and as such, is the world's most sustainable automobile manufacturer.
The BMW Group is the only company in its industry to have been listed in this
important collection of corporate sustainability indexes every year since they
were established in 1999.

The BMW Group's Board of Management defined sustainability as a key corporate
principle back in 2000. Sustainability throughout the supply chain,
comprehensive product responsibility and consistent conservation of resources
are firmly anchored in the company's processes. The BMW Group is using its
strategy for sustainable mobility - which encompasses efficiency increases and
further electrification of the power train through to the long-term use of
hydrogen - to reduce the CO2 emissions of its entire vehicle fleet. Production
sites are minimising their environmental impact and conserving resources. High
social standards for the employees of the BMW Group have also been implemented
at all locations for decades. More detailed information is available at

The SAM Group analyses the economic, environmental and social performance of
approximately 2500 companies and selects the best in each sector for the Dow
Jones Sustainability Indexes. General sustainability criteria are considered as
well as industry-specific challenges such as climate change. The Dow Jones
Sustainability Index was the first global sustainability index to be created,
in 1999, and has since been published each year by the SAM Group, based in
Zurich, in cooperation with Dow Jones Indexes and STOXX Ltd.. More information
is available at www.sustainability-indexes.com.
