Pirelli’s motorsport division has been awarded three stars by the governing body of world motorsport, the FIA, as part of its Environmental Accreditation Programme. This is the highest score possible within the programme, which has been designed to demonstrate a series of measures that participants have to implement in order to achieve the best environmental standards.

Pirelli’s environmental approach will enable the group to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030. Motorsport activities are also moving in this direction, starting with Formula 1™: the company’s principal campaign. Examples of Pirelli’s own environmental sustainability objectives, both in business and manufacturing, include the reduction of overall CO2 emissions by 25% by 2025 (compared to 2015 levels) as well as the aim of purchasing 100% of its electricity from renewable sources: a target already achieved for all of Pirelli’s European plants.

Some of the measures that Pirelli has undertaken within Formula 1™ include increasing the use of renewable materials, elimination of single-use plastics from its trackside operations, and a supply chain that is fully managed according to environmental and social sustainability criteria. On top of that, Pirelli’s motorsport operation has successfully complied with a number of stringent sustainability audits that take in everything from carbon emissions to environmental impact.
