Mercedes-Benz EQ Formula E Team achieves FIA Three-Star Environmental Accreditation
Mercedes-Benz EQ Formula E Team is determined to drive sustainable change in motorsport
With just weeks to go before the start of its second season in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, the Mercedes-Benz EQ Formula E Team is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the status of Three-Star Environmental Accreditation by the FIA.
The aim of the FIA’s Environmental Accreditation Programme is to help and encourage participants to measure and improve their environmental performance.
Three stars: Major milestone is just the beginning
I am delighted that our team has earned the FIA’s Three-Star Environmental Accreditation after only its rookie season in Formula E, joining the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team and the ranks of teams, organisers and racing series that have already reached this milestone, said Ian James, Team Principal of the Mercedes-Benz EQ Formula E Team.
“We have a responsibility to not only comply with the FIA’s requirements, but also to do everything we can to reduce our carbon footprint. So this seal of approval is a very important step for us, but ultimately we need to make sure that we utilise all the measures and levers at our disposal to make our team as sustainable as possible.
We Drive the City: For a better quality of life in the urban environment
With its ‘We Drive the City’ campaign, the team also expresses its commitment to the principle of sustainability and plays its part in shaping urban culture around the world, thereby contributing to a better life for city dwellers everywhere.
The Mercedes-Benz Motorsport family: Strong together
These initiatives on and off the racetrack are consistent with the Mercedes-Benz sustainability offensive ‘Ambition2039’ and the sustainable business strategy for its motorsport activities announced by Mercedes-Benz in March this year.
With its Formula E and Formula 1 teams, Mercedes-Benz explores innovations, promotes technology transfer and presents modern, environmentally compatible mobility technologies ranging from hybrid to battery-electric power units.
