TALKING TO SUSTAINABILITY EXPERTS.
Sustainability is a complex issue. Many aspects play a role in how and where sustainability is successfully implemented. Experts from different fields talk about their jobs, their idea of a sustainable world and where the BMW Group currently stands: What are the challenges we face? What new solutions are there? And how do we successfully approach sustainable development and protect our environment?
My idea of a sustainable world is that we all take care of the resources we use. We rethink our old habits and we question everything we do concerning a future of circular economy.
