Formula E named most sustainable championship in the world

Enovation Consulting's Sustainable Championships Index ranks 105 series on sustainability performance.
  • F1 ranked second; MotoGP and Extreme E tied for third
  • MotoE classed as most improved series
  • Just four championships qualified for the top two categories of sustainability

All-electric series Formula E has been named the most sustainable championship in Enovation Consulting's Sustainable Championships Index.

Formula One was ranked second, while MotoGP and Extreme E tied third in the list. The study applies a comprehensive research-based approach, assessing and reporting on the sustainability performance of 105 motorsport championships globally.

Notably, this is the same top four as last year's report, but all four championships have improved their overall scores. They are also four of just eight championships to have released reports tracking their own sustainability progress.

Points were awarded based on the quantitative data collected to recognise the efforts championships have made across 25 indicators for a total of 100 points available, with absolute points then normalised over the score of the top ranking
championship. The Sustainable Championships Index scoring therefore ranges from 0 to 100.

Based on the scores achieved, the championships were grouped into five categories of sustainability performance. Only four championships qualified for the top two categories. Plus, just ten of the 105 championships surveyed have so far achieved environmental accreditation from the International Automobile Federation (FIA).

The all-electric MotoE series was noted for being the most improved series, placing ninth overall.
