BMW Group’s Sustainability Report 2013


Sustainable Value Report (SVR) 2013 demonstrates sustainability throughout the value chain - for the first time as an interactive PDF


Munich--May 28, 2014: The BMW Group has published its tenth Sustainable Value Report (SVR). The report highlights the sustainability of the entire value chain and is available as an interactive PDF for the very first time.

As the leading premium manufacturer in the automotive industry, the BMW Group is a key player in shaping the future development of sustainable personal mobility.

Highlights of the latest report:

• With BMW i the consequent step into a new dimension of sustainable mobility has taken place.

• The CO2 emissions of the vehicle fleet were reduced compared to the year 1995 by 37 percent to 133 g / km.

• The share of renewable electricity in total electricity supply of the BMW Group has risen to 48 percent.

For many years, the BMW Group has held top positions in important ratings. To strengthen its future viability, the BMW Group has set itself further targets relating to products and their production. One example: to reduce resource consumption during production by 45 percent per vehicle by 2020, compared with levels in 2006.

Since 2010, the facts and data presented in the BMW Group's Sustainable Value Reports have been verified by an independent auditor. The SVR also fulfils the highest standards set by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). It is designed to fulfil the requirements of stakeholders and provide the information required by rating agencies.

This year the SVR is available as an interactive PDF for the very first time – another example of the BMW Group saving resources such as water, paper and reducing CO2 emissions.
