The series continues to set gold standard in sport for sustainable events with the latest renewal of its ISO 20121 certification.

The ABB FIA Formula E Championship has retained its position as the only racing series to receive third-party the International Organization for Standardisation (ISO) 20121 certification, continuing to set the international standard for sustainable practice in events.

Formula E has once again met the strict criteria needed in order to maintain the highest level of certification for sustainable events with their new ideas and innovations that help educate and inspire the entire ecosystem to recycle, and actively reducing the amount of waste produced on site.
 
As well as putting on sustainable events, the core purpose and wider mission of Formula E is to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles and in turn help tackle air pollution in some of the world's most overcrowded and densely populated cities.
 
To speed up the switch to electric and enable more people to embrace clean energy, Formula E has built a sustainability programme based on three pillars including delivering sustainable events and the E-Prix, making a meaningful positive impact in each host city, and using a global platform to promote electric cars and the part they will play in addressing air pollution.
 
Reusable and recyclable water pouches are handed out free of charge to spectators and staff at each Formula E event, cutting out single-use plastic bottles
The ISO 20121 certification - awarded by accreditation body Standard Global Services and confirmed after three separate surveillance audits last season - shows the tireless commitment of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship to moving towards a cleaner future, faster.
 
Working in close collaboration with existing partners and suppliers over the seasons to engage on common sustainability objectives, the electric street racing series has also increased the number of initiatives introduced to improve waste management.
 
These include, for example, the Allianz hydration stations - water pouches to cut out single-use plastic bottles and recyclable non-PVC branding.
 
The branded water pouches - both reusable and recyclable - are handed out free of charge to spectators and staff at each event, with refill stations strategically positioned throughout the paddock, hospitality areas and Allianz E-Village fan zone.
