Of the IAACC’s 2017 awardees, Motev—the all-Tesla black car service—seemed to have particularly impressed the chamber with its commitments both to a business model specifically predicated on sustainability, as well as one focused on directly improving its proximate community. For its efforts, Motev garnered IAACC’s Company of the Year Award. The other businesses recognized by the IAACC at the gala included the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles World Airport.
“We are truly thrilled!” beamed Robert Gaskill, Motev co-founder and CEO. “From day one, our focus has been to provide a beneficial and hyper-local impact on our immediate neighborhood and surrounding community.”
On average, electric vehicles reduce automobile emissions by about half that of gasoline powered cars. In Los Angeles, if just 10% of current motorists switched to electric cars, that would translate to an annual emissions reduction of approximately 8.75 metric tons. Put in those terms, the commitment Motev is making to environmental sustainability seems worthy of the IAACC’s recognition.
“We are extremely proud of our company’s focus on sustainability,” offered Chief Administrative Officer Tiffany Hinton. “It’s the reason our website landing page prominently displays our pledge to plant a tree for every ride Motev provides, which currently exceeds more than 3,000 trees planted in American forests.”
