Bmw takes the ‘Greenest Manufacturer of the Year’ award

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

Despite not having a hybrid car, BMW Group was awarded the "Greenest Manufacturer of the Year Award" by UK's Green-Car-Guide.com. This is the second time that it received this award in the last 3 years.

BMW received the award for having the greatest impact on lowering CO2 emission in the UK throughout the past year.

Paul Clarke, Founder and Managing Editor of Green-Car-Guide.com, said that the BMW Group offers an ideal range of vehicles to meet the criteria of the award.

According to the core philosophy of Green-Car-Guide, the award is focused on best-in-class low emission cars, but the cars should also be great to drive. Stephen Chater, Corporate Operations Manager, BMW Group UK, was on hand to receive the award.

Chater said that the award acknowledges the company's class-leading advances in this sector, which helps to reduce costs for businesses and company car users.

He added that the company won plenty of green awards in 2009 but that it aims to continue this trend in 2010 with the launch of innovative products such as the BMW 320d EfficientDynamics Saloon, which boasts a 109g/km CO2 emissions figure.

The success of the BMW Group and MINI is attributed to its fuel-saving and emissions-reducing EfficientDynamics technologies that are standard across its entire range.
