Formula 1© and the FIA have today announced they have become signatories of the United Nations’ Sport for Climate Action Framework. This follows the announcement in November 2019 that Formula 1 will be net zero carbon as a sport by 2030.

To be considered as a signatory an organisation must adhere to the following five principles:

  1. Undertake systematic efforts to promote greater environmental responsibility;
  2. Reduce overall climate impact;
  3. Educate for climate action;
  4. Promote sustainable and responsible consumption;
  5. Advocate for climate action through communication

The plans set out by Formula 1 to be net zero carbon by 2030 meet all these requirements. By signing up to the framework, we express our intent to implement the principles enshrined in the Sports for Climate Action Framework and commit to working collaboratively with our peers and relevant stakeholders to develop, implement and enhance the climate action agenda in sports.

Chase Carey, Chairman, and CEO of Formula 1, said:

“Last year Formula 1 launched its first-ever sustainability strategy recognising the important role that we must play in tackling climate change.  The actions we will take in the years ahead will reduce our carbon footprint and ensure we are net zero carbon by 2030. We are delighted to join the UN’s efforts in this space and will be working closely with the FIA, teams and partners to ensure we deliver on our plans and implement meaningful change.”

Jean Todt, President of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) said:

“As an international Federation comprising 244 members in 140 countries and the leader in motor sport and mobility development, we are fully committed to global environmental protection. The signing of this UN Sports for Climate Action Framework reinforces the momentum that has been growing in our Federation for many years. From the introduction of the hybrid power unit in F1 to the creation of the Environment and Sustainability Commission, the entire FIA community has been investing time, energy and financial resources to the benefit of environmental innovations. We aim to inspire greater awareness and best practice in sustainability motor sport standards.”
