Sustainability at FIA Formula E Championship - Season Two Finale

Positive Impact, who specialise in sustainability within the event industry, explain the significance of an innovative event such as the FIA Formula E Championship season two finale...

On July 2 & 3 2016, the Formula E Visa London ePrix took place in Battersea Park, London. However, this was more than just a sporting event taking place in the heart of the capital. It was the first Formula E event to implement the global standard for event sustainability, ISO 20121.

The electric street racing series has sustainability at their core. The championship is a leader and has strived to embed sustainability further by considering the social, economic and environmental impact of the 2016 Visa London ePrix at every stage of the event planning and management process. It is important to note that ISO 20121 is all about creating a culture of sustainability and showing continual improvement, not simply working through a checklist. 

Formula E have built ISO 20121 into their event management system. As a young championship (only two seasons old), Formula E have shown commendable passion and drive for sustainability to be a part of all their processes in only two seasons. In the future, sustainability will be non-negotiable and the fact that Formula E are sharing their journey means others can learn from them and be inspired to join the fight against climate change.
