BMW has announced a supplier’s carbon footprint will be a key factor in tendering decisions under a wide-ranging sustainability initiative.

The carmaker said it is aiming for carbon emissions from production and sites to be lowered by 80% per vehicle and it believed its changes would give it the most sustainable supply chain in the auto industry.

Oliver Zipse, chairman of the board of management at BMW, said a key part of the company’s strategy was the development of electric vehicles.
