BMW’s environmental creds are embodied in the i Range and beyond, extending through to the manufacturing processes and factories where vehicles are produced. There is no better example than BMW’s factory in Leipzig, which is one of the most environmentally friendly car plants in the world.
Situated in the midst of medows and forests, the factory is home to over 780,000 bees that pollinate the plants and provide the area with local honey. The grounds are home to a variety of birds, including swifts, hawks, and jackdaws. Add to this the fact that the vehicles made at Leipzig are also environmentally friendly. Take the BMW i3; its yarn is spun from natural plant fibres like wool and hemp, its wood paneling is certifiably sustainable, and dozens of plastic bottles are recycled into every car. Talk about serious commitment.
