- Eurosport Events awarded accreditation for reducing environmental impact
- F1 and Formula E also awarded three-star accreditation
World Touring Car Cup (WTCR) promoter Eurosport Events has been awarded the International Automobile Federation's (FIA) three-star environmental accreditation for efforts to reduce climate change.
The Discovery subsidiary has been received recognition for measuring and reducing its environmental impact, creating sustainable supply chains with partners, as well as assisting local communities.
Eurosport Events has also solidified its commitment to environmental motorsport as the promoter of new electric touring car series, Pure ETCR, and the Electric GT Championship, which launches in 2023.
In addition, Eurosport Events has signed the United Nations Sports for Climate Action Framework. This framework acknowledges the negative contributions sport makes to climate change and supports climate change reduction goals.
"We congratulate Eurosport Events not only for being amongst the first promoters to join the FIA Environmental Accreditation Programme but also to committing to climate action by signing the UNFCCC Sports for Climate Action Programme," said Felipe Calderon, president of the FIA Environment and Sustainability Commission.
"This is the type of leadership that is required for our sport to move forward in tackling the environmental challenges our planet is facing. As we reduce our environment impact and lead sustainable innovation, we are confident that we will accelerate the transition towards a sustainable future for all."
