Julia Pallé, Sustainability Director, Formula E, said: “Plastic pollution is a growing problem that affects everyone around the world and especially in Indonesia. At every race we are committed to engaging with local communities and leaving them in a better place, so aligned to celebrating World Environment Day on 5 June, we united as a championship with the community to clean the local area of plastic rubbish and ensure it is sustainably managed and not put back into landfill.”
The 120 refuse bags recovered from the clean-up will be managed by Waste4Change – an Indonesian waste management service – helping organisations transition their ecosystems towards a circular economy. Waste4Change is the Official Waste Management Partner of the 2023 Gulavit Jakarta E-Prix.
To further reduce the waste produced from Formula E events, this weekend’s event will have 30 Recycling Rangers across the Allianz Fan Village collecting and managing plastic waste for recycling, in addition to six bespoke waste stations dedicated to recycling.
