Electric championship confirms top level of commitment to sustainability goals

The ABB FIA Formula E Championship has received a renewal of its Three-Star Accreditation against the FIA Environmental Certification Framework following an audit during the New York City E-Prix in July of this year. This certification recognises the highest level of commitment to the environmental and sustainability goals set out by the FIA.

Auditors noted that, since its first application in 2015, Formula E has demonstrated significant development in its environmental practices and improving its internal level of developed routines, procedures and monitoring.

Key elements of the FIA Accreditation criteria include management commitment, communication, training and leadership, and also how the organisation manages specific impact areas such as transport, energy-use, and waste-handling, among others.

Having recently achieved ISO certification according to the ISO 20121:2012 management standard, which follows similar guidelines to the FIA’s accreditation checklist, Formula E clearly remains one of the shining examples of an FIA championship promoter that implements an Environmental Management System focused on continual improvement and reduced impact in the running of its events.

“The ABB FIA Formula E Championship demonstrates great leadership through its combined efforts within Environmental Sustainability,” said FIA Deputy President for Sport Graham Stoker. “It has implemented an Environmental Management System to improve its operations according to best practice, and at the same time, is pushing forward and promoting new and cleaner technologies.”
