A quick look on how F1 aims to be Carbon neutral by 2030

The development of a fuel that is 100% sustainable, reducing the use of single-use plastics and strategically planning travel and logistics are just a few things that Formula1 is focusing on in order to achieve its target of becoming Carbon neutral by 2030.

In 2019, F1 along with its 10 teams, race organisers, partners, media broadcasters and the FIA introduced a sustainability target to reduce the carbon footprint of the sport.


Achieved sustainability objectives:

F1 has already achieved many objectives to reduce its carbon footprint through remote broadcast operations, which has negated the need for personnel and equipment to be present at the racetrack.

Secondly, cargo containers have been redesigned to be used more efficiently and race organisers have also been encouraged to come up with new ideas on how to streamline their logistics operations.

In addition, F1 offices are now using 100% renewable energy, with Formula1 earning the highest sustainability management accreditation of 3* awarded by the FIA.

The successful introduction of the E10 fuel in the 2022 season, which is made of 10% ethanol and will reduce the overall amount of CO2 emissions. F1 is also working with sponsors like Aramco and several other fuel manufacturers to develop a 100% sustainable fuel that could be used with the new 2026 engine regulations.

What other future sustainability objectives are being considered? :

Looking ahead, Stefano Domenicali has already hinted that a more efficient F1 race calendar is being looked at, this will ensure that all the cargo and logistics are transported from one race venue to another efficiently.

Carbon reduction measures for fans travelling to F1 events are being investigated, while more efficient travel arrangements will be assessed.

With eight years to go until 2030, F1 is racing towards its target.
