Zero Emissions. Maximum Velocity

In 2019, Formula 1 was responsible for generating 256,00 tonnes of CO₂.

Interestingly, less than 1% of the total can be attributed to the cars.

Logistics and transportation are responsible for 45%.

Other significant contributors are racetrack energy usage, especially at night races, car production, and track construction and maintenance.

In 2024, there will be a record number of GPs, 24 in total.

The FIA is aiming to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2030.

But how?

Over 75% of F1 promotions used renewable energy sources (50% in 2022)

The use of E10 fuel using more ethanol is beneficial.

The single use of plastics will be outlawed.

Regionalising the race calendar.

By using more sea freight and more energy-efficient aircraft.

The development of sustainable, second-generation biofuels and synthetic fuels.

2030 is pretty close, but even closer in 2026, Formula 1’s next generation of race cars will use significantly less energy and produce net zero exhaust CO2 emissions,

The FIA is tackling its carbon footprint through a multi-pronged approach.

By focusing on cleaner fuels, renewable energy, optimising logistics and waste reduction.

The aim is to reduce the carbon footprint without lowering lap times, a highly commendable target.

Every success, our planet is worth it.
