The European Track Racing Championship (ETRC) has offset its unavoidable emissions from the 2022 season.
- ETRC has reduced emissions 92 per cent in last two years
- Offsetting has been achieved through investing in projects certified according to strict requirements of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM)
Context: The championship has made notable steps in sustainability in the past, such as through the implementation of 100 per cent sustainable fuel in all racing trucks and the switch to a bio-LNG (liquefied natural gas) powered Iveco pace truck.
Comment: Georg Fuchs, managing director of the European Truck Racing Association (ETRA), said: “We are committed to using our platform to drive change and have already taken actionable steps towards minimising our carbon footprint.
“We are working closely with our partners, teams as well as the FIA Sporting Working group to further reduce the environmental impact of the events.
“Half of the circuits we race on have one or more FIA [International Automobile Federation] environmental accreditation and our teams are also working towards reducing their emissions.”
Coming next: The next round of the 2023 ETRC season takes place at the Slovakia Ring, Orechová Potôň, from 10th to 11th June.
