BMW Group is the first manufacturer worldwide to join Ship Recycling Transparency Initiative
The BMW Group is the first automobile manufacturer worldwide to join the Ship Recycling Transparency Initiative.
This independent platform, launched in March 2018 by the Sustainable Shipping Initiative, aims to improve measures, transparency and awareness relating to the issue of ship recycling.
The move signals the BMW Group’s commitment to more sustainable organisation of transport logistics. The BMW Group takes a holistic approach to implementing its sustainability goals that encompasses the entire value chain. As a global organisation, the company relies on a multifaceted logistics network – with tasks that range from transporting vehicle parts to plants to distributing finished vehicles to customers.
Sea logistics plays an important part in this. The BMW Group therefore makes it a priority to organise its sea logistics in a responsible manner – especially with respect to recycling practices for ships.
