The project is continued with the sustainability reports for 2015 and 2016. The basis of sustainability report was the Directive on disclosure of nonfinancial and diversity information by certain large companies and groups, which prescribed big companies to report as of 1 January 2017. In alignment with their Sustainability policies in the Sustainability Reports, HEP monitors pollutant emissions into the air – sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon dioxide (CO2) and carbon monoxide (CO).

In order to reduce pollutants and to promote the e-mobility concept, HEP found ELEN brand, with the idea of using electricity from renewable sources as power for charging stations. Under the ELEN brand, HEP e-mobility service currently runs more than 50 ‘green’ charging stations in Croatia. Nevertheless, since the demand for e-mobility infrastructure grows, more charging stations are planned to be opened.

BMW i is among the global leaders in electric mobility and has a fine record of success: More than 100,000 vehicles with either pure-electric or plug-in hybrid drive systems from the BMW i, BMW iPerformance and MINI brands were sold in 2017.
Since the BMW i3 was launched in 2013 it has been a constant presence at the top of the sales charts for premium compact electric vehicles both in Europe and around the world. Evidence of the i3’s leading role in the development of electric mobility can be found not least in the fact that, in many markets, it now has a significantly higher share of the electric vehicle market than its parent brand BMW can claim in segments for conventionally powered models.

Through the extensive transfer of technology to the other BMW Group brands, BMW i has also been a significant factor in the company’s outstanding market success in the field of sustainable mobility. Since March 2017, the BMW eDrive drive-system technology originally developed for BMW i models has found its way into six BMW model ranges and been introduced for the first time in a MINI. Offering models in nine different vehicle classes, the diversity of the BMW Group’s vehicle line-up is beyond that of any rival.

The BMW Group is systematically expanding its range of electrified cars as part of its NUMBER ONE > NEXT strategy and will offer 25 electrified models, twelve of them pure electric, by 2025.

Moreover BMW i is focusing on visionary vehicle concepts, connected mobility services and a new understanding of premium strongly defined by sustainability. High-voltage batteries from BMW i are in increasing demand in applications beyond cars, such as electric marine propulsion systems, electric commercial vehicles and stationary energy storage. Meanwhile, the driver assistance systems and mobility services from BMW Connected Drive and the 360° ELECTRIC services – all developed specially for BMW i – turn zero-emission urban mobility into a compelling everyday driving experience. BMW i furthermore plays an active role in expanding the public charging infrastructure and in the development of innovative new charging technologies.

The BMW Vertriebs GmbH located in Salzburg (Austria) represents the sales region Central-and Southeastern Europe and manages twelve growth markets, including Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia.

With more than 74.000 sold BMW and MINI cars the BMW Vertriebs GmbH achieved again a great performance in 2017.
