BMW Group Joins Aluminum Stewardship Initiative

January 03, 2013

MUNICH - The BMW Group has joined the Aluminum Stewardship Initiative, which seeks to establish sustainable standards for the aluminum production and use value chain.

Aluminum is used in BMW’s vehicles, contributing to a 30% reduction in weight compared to steel. The BMW i3, for example, uses recycled aluminum or aluminum produced using electricity from renewable sources.

“Our aim is to continue to make a major contribution to future mobility through Efficient Dynamics. Lightweight construction will play a key role in this. That is why we are participating in the development of sustainable aluminium standards. We firmly believe that a cross-industry initiative, with the involvement of civil society, is the right approach,” commented Ursula Mathar, head of the BMW Group’s Sustainability and Environmental Protection department.
