The BMW Group has released its new Sustainable Value Report 2015 to coincide with its Annual Accounts Press Conference on 16 March 2016.
The BMW Group is firmly committed to the United Nations’ Global Compact and has implemented its ten principles at all locations since 2001. The company reports annually on its sustainability strategy, goals and progress in its extensive Sustainable Value Report.
Harald Krüger, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG: “Our actions are aimed at shaping the mobility of the future and securing our leading position as a successful company. We have set ourselves concrete sustainability targets we aim to meet by 2020. Last year, once again, our projects and the measures we implemented brought us a good deal closer to these goals.”
