And BMW makes 600

Leading companies continue to embrace TAKE2, with one of world’s most famous premium car manufacturers, BMW Group Australia, becoming Victoria’s 600th business to pledge to take action on climate change.

“With this pledge we will continue to expand BMW’s range of low-emission premium vehicles and infrastructure initiatives, actively reduce our resource consumption and continue to lead discussion on urban sustainability,” said Marc Werner, CEO BMW Group Australia.

In 2013, BMW was the first luxury car maker to launch an electric vehicle and has since introduced an additional seven electrified vehicles to the Australian market. The group has made a global commitment to deliver 25 by 2025.

With 95 dealerships and service outlets across Australia, and operations in more than 140 countries, BMW has a long-standing commitment to environmental sustainability. This is strengthened by its TAKE2 pledge.

BMW joins other big name brands – HESTA, David Jones, Country Road and General Electric – in signing up to TAKE2. Together these companies employ more than 358,000 people across Australia and have more than 16.5 million customers.
