The FIA’s program aims at helping Key players in the motorsport and automotive sector measure and enhance their environmental performance by means of an independent certification process.
The FIA Environmental Accreditation Program is based on existing best practices in environmental sustainability, primarily the ISO 14001.
Ferrari, who were previously awarded the certification in Y 2001 with a renewal in Y 2016 to comply with the latest ISO 14001:2015 standards have continued to press forward to achieve the three-star level, the highest level of accreditation.
Over the yrs, Ferrari has strived to lower energy consumption and minimize its environmental impact by adopting innovative solutions and using renewable sources at manufacturing facilities. This result can be attributed, among others, to meticulous management of energy requirements, 81% of which was covered by Maranello’s trigeneration system, while almost 99% of the remaining energy was purchased from certified renewable sources.
Ferrari’s commitment to reducing the environmental impact is not new and has already produced noteworthy results. By Y 2020, the Maranello Outfit had achieved its goal of reducing the CO2 emissions of its European fleet by an estimated 35% compared to Y 2007 levels.
Another, even more ambitious goal now awaits Ferrari: to become a carbon neutral company within the decade through a series of actions aimed at reducing our GHG emissions produced and, when unavoidable, offsetting the residual ones. This further decisive step towards sustainability will begin this yr with a certification to measure our carbon footprint.
Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow is also at the forefront of our commitment to environmental sustainability, sharing with F1 and all the other top-level motorsport stakeholders, the goal of becoming a Net Zero Carbon sport by Y 2030.
An integral part of this is the support from partners of the Scuderia. One example is the collaboration with Shell. Since the recent Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix, the fuel used to power the generators required for track operations has been made up of 60% renewables and 40% GTL (gas-to-liquid). Thanks to the use of this fuel, the level of emissions produced by previous generators will be halved, while any unavoidable emissions will be offset using natural solutions that reduce the carbon intensity of the energy produced.
Felipe Calderón, President of the FIA Environment and Sustainability Commission: “We are delighted to see that Ferrari has a strong commitment to environmental sustainability, and we recognize this with the highest level Three-Star FIA Environmental Accreditation. We are confident that this will act as a catalyst for more changes throughout Formula 1, motor sport and automotive mobility as a whole as part of the #PurposeDriven movement launched by the FIA. 55 accreditations have already been awarded since the beginning of the FIA Environmental Accreditation Programme and it is a great achievement.”
Mattia Binotto, Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow Managing Director and Team Principal: “Achieving the three stars in the FIA Environmental Accreditation Programme is an important acknowledgement for Ferrari. The issue of environmental sustainability is becoming more and more of a priority in motor racing. It is a commitment that we feel strongly about as a Scuderia, both in our day-to-day activities – as evidenced by the two projects that we implemented in early 2021 – as well as over the long term. Formula 1 has now reached a very high technological level in terms of power unit efficiency, and we are working hard, alongside the FIA, Formula 1 and the other car manufacturers involved in defining the regulatory framework for the future, with the aim of transferring the best on-track solutions onto road-going cars, a fundamental component in Ferrari’s DNA.”
