All Formula 1 teams have achieved the FIA Three-Star Environmental Accreditation, making F1 the first World Championship to achieve the highest level of environmental sustainability recognition from the governing body.

The programme, which was launched in 2011, helps the motorsport industry assess and enhance their environmental performance across 17 criteria, including energy use, supply chain management, transport planning, noise management and carbon emissions.

F1's commercial rights holders were awarded the accreditation back in 2020, and since then all 10 teams have now conformed to the standard as part of the drive to reach Net Zero emissions by 2030.

"To have our whole championship, as well as many of our partners and promoters, achieve this milestone is a significant moment and one which demonstrates the ongoing commitment from the whole F1 community to change to reach our sustainability goals," said F1 President and CEO Stefano Domenicali.

"There is of course a lot of work still to do, but we are committed to hitting our targets, continuing to innovate in a sustainable way, and setting a positive example to the motorsport community and beyond."

F1's drive to be sustainable

The FIA has pledged that all of its World Championships must be carbon neutral by 2030, with carbon action plans in place by 2025.

Mercedes Team Principal Toto Wolff has stated that F1 must become a role model in this area as it looks to attract more sponsors who want to see responsible business practices.

F1 has ambitious plans to reduce its carbon footprint to Net Zero by 2030, which include net zero carbon-powered race cars, ultra efficient logistics and travel, an aim to work off 100% renewable energy and utilise credible carbon offsets.

A controversial move to ban tyre blankets from 2024 is also being assessed by F1, the FIA and teams as it could save a lot on carbon output on race weekends.

Alongside the 10 teams, official tyre supplier Pirelli and several events on the F1 calendar have also achieved the three-star rating including Italy, Spain, Belgium, Austria and the UAE, with the UK, Japan and Singapore.
