SDG Lab Fellowship: BMW Group Plant Oxford Programme Panel & Networking

We will be joined at the panel by Dr Markus Grüneisl, CEO of BMW Group UK. BMW Group Plant Oxford are one of Oxford’s largest employers. In 2023 the plant will celebrate it’s 110th year of production in the city with around 1,000 cars built each day. Today the plant stands at the cutting edge of automotive manufacturing technology and sustainability after significant investments over the years. A major focus is the reduction of energy usage, water consumption, waste of all kinds and CO2 emissions. 

The Oxford SDG Impact Lab offers graduate students the opportunity to apply their academic talents to real-world challenges, in partnership with businesses and other organisations. It is a ground-breaking initiative that delivers values-based leadership and employability skills training. 

We are delighted that the SDG Lab will be working with BMW to deliver the 2022/23 BMW Group Plant Oxford Programme which will focus on impacts in three areas: Climate, Colleagues and Community. Come along to hear more about this brand-new collaboration and your chance to participate.
