Formula E achieves net zero carbon footprint since inception
Formula E has become the first sport in the world to achieve net zero carbon emissions since its inception.
The sport announced the achievement at the start of Climate Week NYC 2020 and achieved the milestone using a three-step approach of "effective measurement of carbon output, prioritising reducing its footprint and offsetting remaining unavoidable emissions".
The guidelines followed were set out by the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
Championship CEO Jamie Reigle said: "The ABB FIA Formula E Championship aims to deliver better futures through racing, and we are committed to play a leading role in counteracting the effects of climate change.
"We have actively measured and reduced our emissions since our inception and are proud to have achieved a net zero carbon footprint by offsetting our remaining emissions.
