The Formula 1 team has joined the likes of Haas, Mercedes, Aston Martin and Sauber in achieving the certification. The FIA Environmental Accreditation Programme was launched by the governing body in 2011, and is aimed at helping motorsport and mobility stakeholders to measure and enhance their environmental performance. 

Alpine’s environmental performance was reviewed during an official audit by the FIA in December last year, at the team’s base in Enstone, Oxfordshire and remotely in Viry Châtillon in France. 

For Alpine to have progressed from Two-Star to Three-Star Environmental Accreditation, the team must be powered by 100% renewable energy in the UK, with 80% of lights replaced by LEDs. 

“Our decarbonisation journey is well underway, and we look forward to sharing more positive milestones in the near future.” Alpine Team Principal Otmar Szafnauer

Alpine Team Principal Otmar Szafnauer said: “We are pleased to announce our FIA Three-Star Environmental Accreditation. It is a great step forward in our environmental roadmap. We are now working towards securing ISO 14001 accreditation for Enstone, which sits within the framework of Alpine’s Sustainability Strategy.

“Our decarbonisation journey is well underway, and we look forward to sharing more positive milestones in the near future.”

Bruno Famin, Executive Director of Alpine’s Viry Châtillon site, added: “We are proud of the continuous environmental work being done in Viry Châtillon. The FIA Three-Star Environmental Accreditation validates our efforts as we continue to implement actions to reduce the environmental impact and contribute to Alpine’s environmental strategy.

“The accreditation also validates the cooperation done with Enstone for the benefit of BWT Alpine F1 Team and more globally for Alpine.”
