BMW Group Malaysia’s green initiative at FRIM

The BMW Group is regarded as the most sustainable car company in the world by several environmental authorities as a result of its corporate policies as well as technological advancements to improve engine efficiency while reducing carbon emissions.

BMW Malaysia did its part for the Malaysian environment at the Botanical Gardens at FRIM ini Kepong on 4th January 2013.  Management and employees of BMW Malaysia and BMW Credit Malaysia planted 200 camphor trees over 2 acres of the forest reserve. The trees are known to provide excellent shade as well as act as a major carbon offset solution for reducing CO² in the atmosphere. The new trees will raise the biodiversity index of the area as well as provide habitats for many different animal species.
