Sustainability & Efficiency

GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT, GOOD FOR US.

SAVING FUEL AND REDUCING EMISSIONS.

Plant Hams Hall is producing the latest generation of engines with the most up to date BMW EfficientDynamics technologies. Our engine production already contributes to the company’s electromobility strategy, supplying engines for hybrid models including the MINI COOPER S E ALL4 and the BMW i8 plug-in hybrid sports car.    

EFFICIENT USE OF RESOURCES.

Energy and Water.

At Plant Hams Hall the efficient use of resources is a key target. Sustainability programmes to reduce energy and water consumption were introduced when the plant first opened and have become a continuous part of our everyday business. We have invested significantly in innovative technical solutions and engagement with our workforce to reduce our consumption of resources.

Monitoring of our systems helps to better understand our usage profiles and along with regular audits and active focus on the control of specific systems, we are constantly identifying opportunities for further reductions.    
Taking social and environmental responsibility for everything we do is embedded into BMW Group’s culture and is an integral part of how we operate.

Recycling.

100 per cent of all materials used at the plant and within the production process are recycled.
