McLaren handed FIA accolade for ninth year in succession

McLaren has been awarded the FIA three-star Environmental Accreditation for the ninth successive year.

The programme is aimed at assisting the measurement and enhancement of environmental performance by global motorsport and mobility stakeholders.

The Woking-based team became the first F1 team to achieve the rating in 2013 and continues to operate at the highest level of the framework.

McLaren director of sustainability Kim Wilson said: “McLaren Racing has a legacy of sustainable leadership, and we recognise our responsibility to provide solutions to sustainability challenges through our people, operations and practices.

“Receiving the FIA Environmental Accreditation for the ninth year running shows that we continue to make steps in the right direction, but we know that there is still so much more for us to do.

"We will continue to focus on implementing a circular mindset and educating our people to raise further environmental awareness, alongside the FIA’s recommended areas of improvement.”

Felipe Calderon, FIA Environment and Sustainability Commission President, said:

The FIA's president of the environment and sustainability commission, Felipe Calderon, added: “I congratulate McLaren Racing on its significant achievement of renewed three-star FIA Environmental Accreditation, which demonstrates the strength of its long-term commitment to environmental sustainability.

“McLaren became the first motorsport organisation in the world to receive FIA Environmental Accreditation in 2013.

"The actions carried out since then have brought today McLaren to the very highest standards in accordance with the three-star level.

"This award is the recognition that McLaren Racing have constantly been at the forefront of advanced innovation to create a sustainable sport for the future and marks a new milestone in this ongoing journey."
