Sustainability case study

BMW UK has tasked its dealer network to improve its environmental standards in line with BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method).

A team of specialists assessed the level of development each dealer required to make the grade by looking at four main areas: heat, electricity, operational conditions and air systems within a building.

Areas included increasing insulation and installing low energy lighting, right through to photovoltaic solar panels on the roof, groundwater heat pumps, wind turbines and heat recovery technology.
