The BMW Group has expanded its commitment towards making transport logistics more sustainable.

Ahead of the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Madrid and as part of the Group's commitment to further reduce carbon emissions along the entire value chain, the company has joined the 'Getting to Zero Coalition'. The objective of this initiative is to use zero-emission cargo vessels from 2030. The Getting to Zero Coalition is a partnership between the Global Maritime Forum, the Friends of Ocean Action and the World Economic Forum.

Maritime transport currently accounts for 50% of the BMW Group's transport chain CO2 emissions. Globally, around 3% of the overall greenhouse gas emissions come from maritime transport, and the trend is growing upwards. As part of the Getting to Zero Coalition, the BMW Group now wants to achieve a total elimination of carbon emissions by using carbon-free fuels and new propulsion systems as well as optimising energy efficiency.
