Formula 1 to go net-zero carbon by 2030

November 12, 2019 |

In the UK, Formula 1 has announced an ambitious sustainability plan to have a net-zero carbon footprint by 2030This initiative will cover the Formula 1 cars and on-track activity and the rest of the operations as a sport. The plan comes after twelve months of intense work with the FIA, sustainability experts, Formula 1 teams, promoters, and partners, resulting in an ambitious, yet achievable delivery plan.

Carbon reduction projects will begin immediately to start the journey of becoming a more sustainable sport. The current F1 hybrid power unit, delivering more power using less fuel than any other car, combined with advanced sustainable fuels and energy recovery systems presents a tremendous opportunity to deliver a net-zero carbon hybrid power unit. With over 1 billion of the 1.1 billion vehicles in the world powered by ICEs, it has the potential to reduce carbon emissions globally.
