The pandemic has accelerated a shift in values: cleaner air and greater sustainability are recognized as both urgent and achievable. Evolving into a responsible organization and prioritizing sustainability are key imperatives for success. And original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) can drive value and impact by combining digital and sustainability.
OEMs are leveraging learnings and capabilities from other industries, such as Energy, Utilities and Software & Platforms to radically reduce their impact on the planet.
The automotive industry has a remarkable opportunity to create more affordable, energy efficient and convenient solutions.
Practical benefits of this industry-wide evolution
By 2030, global demand for mobility is set to increase by 70%. At the same time, the automotive sector must reduce carbon emissions by at least 50%.
A delicate balance
New industry solutions—like enhanced fleet electrification and seamless charging—will help balance the need for mobility and sustainability.
A three-pronged win
The e-mobility revolution can significantly reduce resource consumption while accelerating recovery from the pandemic and supporting growth.
Assess and identify priority solutions through data-driven insights to help companies set—and meet—their targets.
Develop a holistic, actionable plan for sustainable innovation across the value chain.
Deliver integrated solutions and insights to track impact and drive tangible progress toward sustainability goals.
BMW Group’s Urby Mobility
An app for eco-friendly employee mobility
BMW Group, one of the largest companies in Germany and automobile manufacturers in the world, aims to embed sustainability in everything it does. To address the eco-impact of staff transport, BMW Group collaborated with Zielpuls, part of Accenture, to create Urby Mobility. This innovative app, which is already being used by 18,000 BMW employees, makes sustainable corporate mobility choices easy. And now Urby is available to other companies too.
Regulatory requirements and new business models require a high level of integration among a complex ecosystem of partners. Accenture understands this complexity and addresses the challenges as a whole.
For OEMs, transformation around three main areas is inevitable to succeed in this changing market:
As the ecosystem continues to shift and expand, automakers need to collaborate to provide an enriched, holistic customer experience in an emerging landscape.
Together with energy companies and utilities, we’re helping organizations make their mark in the e-revolution.
