THE BMW Group has continued to reduce its fleet-wide CO2emissions, making a contribution to its CO2reduction targets for the whole group.
Based on preliminary internal calculations, the BMW Group's EU fleet-wide emissions came in at 102.1 grams per kilometre for 2023 compared to 105 grams per kilometre in 2022.
It is a reduction of 2.8 per cent from the previous year and sees BMW as a group, outperforming EU targets of 128.5 grams per kilometre by 26.4 grams in 2023.
Implementation of the BMW Group's electrification strategy has been a driver for its continuing reduction of fleet-wide emissions.
In 2023, the company sold a total of 376,183 fully-electric vehicles worldwide - 74.4 per cent more than in 2022. The BMW Group's sales growth for fully-electric vehicles in 2023 outpaced growth in the total BEV market.
With more than 15fully-electric models in its line-up, the BMW Group aims to continue its BEV growth in 2024.
It says one in five of the company's newly delivered vehicles should have a fully-electric drive train this year and by 2025, it should be one in four.
In addition to increasing electrification of the BMW Group fleet, continuous further development of conventional drive trains also helped lower CO2emissions. The latest update to the drive train kit has further boosted the efficiency of internal combustion engines, especially since autumn 2022.
The BMW Group views continuous emissions reduction across its vehicle fleet an integral part of its sustainability strategy. By 2030, the company plans to reduce its total CO2emissions by at least 40 per cent per vehicle from 2019 levels.
The aim is to achieve this from the supply chain, to production, to the use phase. The BMW Group plans to be climate-neutral no later than 2050.
The BMW Group is pursuing a path that is in line with the Paris climate goal for limiting global warming.
The company is the first German automotive manufacturer to join the "Business Ambition for 1.5Â° C" campaign launched by the Science-Based Targets Initiative and also part of the United Nations' international Race to Zero campaign.
