BMW Automakers Take Part In American Business Act on Climate Pledge

We love offering exciting and luxurious BMW cars in our Santa Monica area BMW inventory here at Center BMW. And we love driving them even more! But we're also concerned about our environment, not just here in the Santa Monica and Los Angeles area that we serve but around the world. That's why we're glad to report that BMW is committed to helping preserve our environment by taking part in the American Business Act on Climate Pledge.

The pledge serves to voice strong and dedicated commitment to both sustainability and doing something about protecting our planet's climate. For their part, BMW has committed to becoming the auto industry's leading manufacturer in renewable and sustainable energy use in the production process by 2020. And that doesn't mean just in their factories. It also intends to encompass every step of the production process and all facets of their business organization.

Additionally, BMW is investing more than $2.7 million in a partnership with the Argonne National Laboratory to help improve the capabilities and performance of the advanced batteries used in electric vehicles. BMW expects to exceed $10 million in investments towards advancing the technology and equipment used in electric vehicles as well as help advance the adoption of electric vehicles in the automotive market.

According to Ludwig Willisch, BMW of North America President and CEO, "The American Business Act on Climate Pledge demonstrates our company's public commitment to fight climate change by taking action... With this commitment, the BMW Group further shows its intent to continue being a leader in sustainability across the entire value chain: from R&D to manufacturing to operations."

BMW cars are luxurious, exciting, and we love driving them all around Santa Monica and Los Angeles and the area. But we're also concerned about more than just driving! We're proud to report that BMW is just as concerned about our planet as we are. So be sure to stop in to Center BMW to check out our extensive inventory of BMW vehicles today!
