Shifting Paradigms for a Sustainable Mobility
BMW Chairman Oliver Zipse explains his company’s roadmap for becoming a worldwide leader in e-mobility and the circular economy.
“Our ambition is to build the greenest electric vehicles in our industry – from raw materials, the supply chain, and production up to recycling”, Zipse told DLD founder Steffi Czerny, adding that this included CO2 neutral production facilities as well as a “secondary first” strategy when it comes to using repurposed materials whenever possible.
Since his appointment in 2019 Oliver Zipse has been Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG. He joined the company in 1991 and he has held various responsibilities in development, technical planning and production. He holds degrees from the Technical University of Darmstadt, WHU Koblenz and the Kellogg School of Management.
