All F1 teams achieve motorsport’s environmental gold standard
Formula 1 has become the first motorsport Championship to have all member teams achieve FIA Three-Star Environmental Accreditation, the highest level of environmental sustainability recognition from the sport’s governing body.
Alongside the 10 F1 Teams, the FIA Formula One World Championship itself has also renewed its own Three-Star Environmental Accreditation as the sport pursues its target of becoming net zero by 2030.
Several race promoters and host circuits have achieved the highest level of accreditation, as has Pirelli, a global partner of Formula 1 and supplier of the World Championship.
“To have our whole championship, as well as many of our partners and promoters, achieve this milestone is a significant moment and one which demonstrates the ongoing commitment from the whole F1 community to change to reach our sustainability goals. There is of course a lot of work still to do, but we are committed to hitting our targets, continuing to innovate in a sustainable way, and setting a positive example to the motorsport community and beyond.”
The FIA Environmental Accreditation Programme was launched in 2011 to help the motorsport industry to assess and enhance its environmental performance. It measures performance across a range of 17 criteria ranging from energy use and supply chain management; to transport planning, noise management and carbon emissions.
The F1 World Championship was first awarded the accreditation in 2020, with key stakeholders such as teams and race promoters following suit.
“At the pinnacle of motorsport, it is vital that the FIA Formula One World Championship sets the highest standards for environmental sustainability, and this renewal of FIA Three-Star Environmental Accreditation recognises that the championship continues to prioritise and achieve best practice in reaching its goals. This announcement is a great endorsement of the FIA Environmental Accreditation Programme that provides a framework for the motor sport community at every level to tackle the environmental issues that face us all, and I congratulate Formula 1 for its ongoing work and achievements on its path to become a net zero carbon organisation by 2030.”
