Formula 1 has introduced a plan to move towards zero carbon emissions by 2030. It applies not only to racing tracks, but also to cars of personnel, air transport used by the company, equipment for events.

F1 said it “will switch to ultra-efficient logistics and travel, as well as offices, infrastructure and manufacturing with 100% renewable food” and will offset emissions that cannot be reduced.

According to F1 experts, the total emissions in 2018 amounted to 256 551 tons, not counting the transport that the fans used. Of these, 45% accounted for logistics (road, air and sea transportation), 27.7% for staff travel, 19.3% for production, 7.3% for events and only 0.7% for emissions from F1 cars themselves, including test runs.

F1 intends to starte reduction measures immediately. And by 2025, all projects will be transferred to a regular basis. Among them are rejection of the use of disposable plastic, as well as ensuring the reuse, recycling or composting of all waste.

And since 2021, the gasoline used in F1 will have to contain at least 10% biofuels.

According to the company, the high-tech turbo-hybrid power units used to power F1 cars since 2014 are the most efficient car engines in the world in terms of thermal efficiency.
