Hansen Motorsport become first World RX team to achieve carbon neutral status

Swedish outfit targeting net-zero emissions by 2040.

Hansen Motorsport have become the first World Rallycross (World RX) team to achieve carbon neutrality.

Confirmed:

  • Team have reduced their carbon emissions by 57.9 per cent since 2019
  • Offsetting emissions through their support of the Piedra Larga wind farm project in Mexico

Context: World RX went fully electric in 2022, something that has assisted in the sustainable direction of the team. The team’s recently released 2022 sustainability report confirmed their carbon neutral status.

Comment: Susann Hansen, head of sustainability at Hansen Motorsport, said: “Hansen Motorsport has never been afraid of leading. Leading is what we strive for each day, whether that’s on or off the racetrack. When we had the chance to go fully electric in [World RX], it was jumping into something new. It was scary, but it was the right thing to do – and we felt it was also the opportunity to take our environmental commitments to a new level.

“We were the first rallycross team to join UNFCCC Sports For Climate Action and the first to get the FIA three-star accreditation. Now we are also the first in publishing a sustainability report, and to be offsetting by supporting wind power technology.”

Coming next: The 2023 World RX season kicks off next month with the World RX of Portugal from 3rd to 4th June.
