OUR COMPREHENSIVE THREE-PILLAR APPROACH.
The BMW Group feels itself obliged to achieve the targets of the Paris Climate Agreement and reduce CO2 emissions over the entire value-added chain while observing all ecological guidelines. Forming the essential constituents are environmental protection, efficient management with the available resources and further development of the circular economy as a crucial core element.
The BMW Group sees itself as an enterprise and employer with social responsibility for its own employees and society. This is why it attaches great value to the health, diversity and development opportunities for its workforce. As a global player, the BMW Group is equally aware of its responsibility to society.
The BMW Group is aware of its economic importance and organises its corporate governance in line with responsible principles directed towards increasing the value of the business on a sustainable basis. Of key importance is compliance with the guidelines, which we view as the foundation stone for long-term success and which are firmly enshrined within our corporate culture. Through this approach, we aim to avoid financial damage and a loss of trust in us from the outset. Consequently, our handling of possible risks never loses sight of the future and the consequences for our company.
