CLIMATE CHAMPION AWARDS
Celebrating the efforts by the teams within Formula E at the end of the season, the Climate Champion Award - created alongside the Climate Group's EV100 programme - acknowledges and awards their efforts to raise awareness and tackle inner-city air pollution through the promotion and development of electric mobility.
Season 6 was awarded to Envision Racing for their holistic approach to sustainability as a team, with a key highlight, its Race Against Climate Change Initiative. Last season saw Mahindra Racing being rewarded for becoming the first Formula E team to gain three-star FIA Sustainability Accreditation in September 2020.
HEINEKEN GREENER BAR
Heineken® has launched its first sustainable bar concept, the Heineken® Greener Bar, at the London E-Prix Race as part of its wider role as a 'Sustainability Partner' of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship with ambitions to make event bars a little bit greener.
The Heineken® Greener Bar is a completely new entertainment experience for Heineken® that uses new building methods, materials and technologies focused on improving how we upcycle, recycle and reuse materials. Through its innovative design, the Heineken® Greener Bar will help to reduce waste, water, emissions and energy usage, ultimately creating a more sustainable bar solution for events.
Per event the Heineken® Greener Bar saved:
- 6,539kg of event waste: the equivalent to the daily waste from 2,209 ‘average’ households.
- 5,335kW hours of energy: the equivalent power used to run 4,337 standard dishwasher cycles.
- 21,128kg of CO2 eq. emissions: the equivalent to saving the emissions from driving a fossil fuel vehicle around an average Formula E track 7,775 times.
- 25,108l of water: the equivalent to 53,421 pints of water.
