Audi of America at the „Women’s Conference“


In an effort to bring the issue of efficient fuel technologies to more than 14,000 women expected to attend the 2007 event, Audi of America today announced its participation in the nation’s leading conference on women.
The Women’s Conference in Long Beach, California, which is hosted by California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and First Lady Maria Shriver, is an annual non-partisan event. This year’s theme “Remarkable Lives. Remarkable Legacies. What’s Yours?” encourages women worldwide to think about their own legacies. 2007 featured speakers will include former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, Her Majesty Queen Rania Al-Abdullah of Jordan, financial bestseller author David Bach, actress Kirstie Alley, singer Joan Baez, actress and author Jamie Lee Curtis, fashion designer Diane von Fuerstenberg, Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Thomas Friedman, Oprah magazine columnist Dr. Martha Beck and award-winning Special Olympic athlete Loretta Claiborne among others.

Audi will host the “Living Green” panel discussion, which is designed to inspire attendees to think about their individual environmental legacy and provides an overview of technologies and tools to help participants reduce their own carbon footprint. Audi will also showcase the new Audi Q7 3.0 TDI with ultra-low emission system, the cleanest diesel engine in the world.

Conference attendees will be able to attend a “Living Green” panel discussion hosted by Dr. Hackenberg-Wiedl, Head of Audi Diesel Powertrain Product Management, and hear firsthand how individual driving behavior can impact fuel consumption by 30 percent. She will also highlight the integrated fuel-reduction strategy of Audi including the high-tech TDI engines with ultra-low emission system which is also displayed at the Audi booth on the main floor.

As early as next year, Audi will be putting the cleanest diesel engine in the world into production in the US: the 3.0 TDI with ultra low emission system will initially be available for the Audi Q7. The 3.0 TDI fullfils the toughest emission standard in the world - the LEV II Bin 5 classification, which is operative in the US states of California, New York, Massachusetts, Maine and Vermont. This high-tech diesel from Audi also already complies with the emission limits that are due to come into force in Europe from 2014. Apart from the cleanest diesel in the world, Audi is tackling the issue of efficiency with all its resources - efficient drive systems, new technologies, new drive concepts as well as supporting research of biofuels and traffic management.

The Women’s Conference is the largest and most dynamic one-day gathering of women in the nation. Recognized for its unparalleled capacity to inspire and empower women to become architects of change, the annual conference unites more than sixty leaders with 14,000 women in one arena, plus thousands more virtually, to share enriching stories of transformation and success, words of encouragement and life lessons. Under the leadership of California First Lady Maria Shriver, the non-profit, non-partisan women’s conference has grown from a California government initiative for working professionals into a life-changing experience and national network of women from all walks of life, backgrounds and perspectives. Its thriving online community and year-round programs make The Women’s Conference an ongoing source of support, inspiration and motivation for the tens of thousands it has touched.
