BWT Alpine F1 Team Successfully Achieves FIA Three-Star Environmental Accreditation

BWT Alpine F1 Team has today announced it has successfully achieved the FIA Three-Star Environmental Accreditation, part of the FIA Environmental Accreditation Programme, for both its Enstone and its Viry Châtillon sites.

The FIA Environmental Accreditation Programme is aimed at helping motorsport and mobility stakeholders worldwide to measure and enhance their environmental performance.

The team’s environmental performance was reviewed during an official audit by the FIA last December on site in Enstone and remotely for Viry Châtillon, the French site being already certified ISO 14001, where it reviewed best management practices in areas such as energy use, biodiversity, and overall carbon emission.

The award of the FIA Three-Star accreditation stamps the initiatives taken by BWT Alpine F1 Team as it made progress in areas including the set-up of an efficient environmental management system alongside operational initiatives involving the team such as the implementation of bottle-free zones both trackside and at its Enstone factory, courtesy of the support of title partner BWT. It also highlights the sourcing of renewable energy for its Enstone factory’s day to day consumption [since 2004]. In Viry Châtillon, certified ISO 14001 [since 2011], the work to reduce its environmental impact is continuous and includes actions such as the implementation of biowaste sorting, no more single use plastic cups and a 95% reduction of use of solvents for cleaning parts. Moreover, the accreditation reflects the close collaboration between both our sites: from feeding back about common experiences, sharing best practices, to common thinking about initiatives to implement across Viry and Enstone.


Otmar Szafnauer, Team Principal, BWT Alpine F1 Team

“We are pleased to announce our FIA Three-Star Environmental Accreditation. It is a great step forward in our environmental roadmap. We are now working towards securing ISO 14001 accreditation for Enstone, which sits within the framework of Alpine’s Sustainability Strategy. Our decarbonisation journey is well underway, and we look forward to sharing more positive milestones in the near future.”


Bruno Famin, Executive Director, BWT Alpine F1 Team Viry Châtillon

“We are proud of the continuous environmental work being done in Viry Châtillon. The FIA Three-Star Environmental Accreditation validates our efforts as we continue to implement actions to reduce the environmental impact and contribute to Alpine’s environmental strategy. The accreditation also validates the cooperation done with Enstone for the benefit of BWT Alpine F1 Team and more globally for Alpine.”


Felipe Calderón, President of the FIA Environment and Sustainability Commission

“I’d like to congratulate the Alpine F1 Team for achieving the highest Three-Star Environmental Accreditation level from the FIA – from the drivers, engineers, mechanics, staff, managers, investors and all the team members, it takes a commitment at every level to achieve this status. The team has demonstrated best practice in their operations, as well as solid plans to carry these policies forward into the future.
