First carbon neutral Formula E team
Formula E team Envision Virgin Racing has become the first to be certified ‘carbon neutral’ through the PAS 2060 carbon neutrality specification.
The certification covers both of the team’s operational facilities in Silverstone and London, as well as its 40 staff. The team said that where they were unable to reduce their carbon footprint in the first instance, they have implemented carbon offsetting schemes.
Jennifer Babington, operations director at Envision Virgin Racing, said to BusinessGreen, “Given there are just a handful of sports teams to have achieved this accolade - and even fewer motorsport teams - I know every single staff member is immensely proud of our achievement.”
