BMW Joins “Getting to Zero Coalition”
The BMW Group aims to decarbonize international maritime shipping by 2030.
As part of BMW Group’s commitment to further reduce carbon emissions, the company has joined the “Getting to Zero Coalition,” with the goal of making their transport logistics more sustainable.
Maritime transport currently accounts for 50% of the BMW Group’s transport chain CO2 emissions, and the objective of the Getting to Zero Coalition is to use zero-emission cargo vessels from 2030.
“Maritime transport is crucial for supplying the BMW Group’s international manufacturing network and for the global distribution of vehicles. We see the Getting to Zero Coalition of various governments, companies and other cross-sector stakeholders as a unique opportunity to continuously minimize carbon emissions in the maritime sector as well,” said Jürgen Maidl, Senior Vice President Production Network and Supply Chain Management at the BMW Group. “We are delighted to be the first carmaker to join this coalition and thus lead the way towards more sustainability.”
