The BMW Group attended this year’s COP 26 UN climate summit, bringing along the BMW i Vision Circular.

Attending every UN climate summit since 2008, the BMW Group has outlined their commitment and ambitions during climate discussions.

The BMW i Vision Circular was produced using solely secondary materials, as a statement of commitment to adapting industry and developing climate conscious products.

“The key to sustainability lies in innovation: in innovative technologies, but also in innovative thinking that accepts no boundaries,” the Chairman of BMW Group’s board of management, Oliver Zipse said.

To reflect this attitude, BMW plants to reduce CO2 emissions by at least 40 per cent by 2030. This will be achieved through every phase of production starting with raw materials, the supply chain, recycling, and limiting the negative environmental impact of the overall vehicle use.

Since the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in 2015, the BMW Group has been a partner of the Sustainable Innovation Forum (SIF). Considered one of the most important economic forums within the COP framework, SIF acts to unify those from the political sector, environment ministers, business leaders, investors, and NGOs alongside the UN Climate Change negotiations.

The Chairman of BMW Group’s board of management, Oliver Zipse delivered the keynote speech for the three-day event in Glasgow this year, urging a push for change and unity.

“Most importantly, together we must choose and follow a binding path with clear goals. Always according to the motto: No more waiting. No more clever tactics. It’s time to act – now.”
