As the world’s first automobile manufacturer to join the new independent platform, BMW Group is proud to partner with the Ship Recycling Transparency Initiative (SRTI). Launched in March 2018 by the Sustainable Shipping Initiative, the platform's aim is to improve measures, transparency and awareness relating to ship recycling. This also represents BMW’s commitment to a more sustainable way of working throughout its entire global organisation.
Sea logistics greatly affect BMW’s multifaceted and complex network, from transporting vehicle parts to plants to distributing finished vehicles to customers. Anita Pieper, responsible for Vehicle Distribution at the BMW Group, emphasised that "Sustainable awareness and transparency are guiding principles for the BMW Group’s actions. We demand the same from our partners in our worldwide distribution and transport network."
