Formula E crowned most sustainable motorsport championship for third year running

Top three is identical to last season, with IndyCar and WRC notable climbers.
  • F1 ranked second overall
  • MotoGP and Extreme E tied for third

Formula E has been named the most sustainable motorsport championship by Enovation Consulting for the third year running.

The top three is identical to last year’s ranking, with Formula One in second and Extreme E and MotoGP tied for third.

In the wider study, seven championships scored points for the first time, while IndyCar and the World Rally Championship (WRC) moved a significant number of places up the leaderboard.

IndyCar jumped 47 places this year, rising to 21st overall, while WRC rose from 22nd to 14th.

This year, sustainability performance increased most in relation to environmental criteria, and the points awarded across any area were for actions around renewable energy and energy efficiency at headquarters and/or events.

These gains reflect the industry’s continued support for the environment and its foundation in technological innovation.

“This year’s Sustainable Championships Index clearly shows the ongoing commitment of the motorsport industry to improve sustainability practices and remain accountable by transparently and publicly disclosing their work,” said Dr Cristiana Pace, founder and chief executive of Enovation Consulting.

“With two new championships making it into the index and ten championships jumping from the low-performance category (0 cups) to the medium-low category (one cup), in just 12 months, we clearly see the benefit of creating a system to disclose and rank the ESG practices of motorsport stakeholders.”
