The FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile) has presented the highest award for environmental protection and sustainability to the NIO 333 Formula E team. The team was awarded Three-Star Environmental Accreditation, in recognition of its sustainable approach to racing and excellent environmental awareness.
The FIA Environmental Accreditation Programme is aimed at helping motorsport and mobility stakeholders measure and enhance their environmental performance. By introducing clear and consistent environmental management into motorsport and mobility, the FIA says it provides stakeholders with a three-level framework against which to accredit their activities. To achieve accreditation, applicants must demonstrate the existence of a variety of environmental standards, transparently document them in detail in an environmental management system and define clear environmental protection and sustainability goals.
Vincent Wang, CEO of the NIO team, remarked, “I feel honored that the team has obtained the FIA Three-Star Environmental Accreditation. In the past season, in addition to competing in the world’s most competitive motorsport championship, the NIO 333 Formula E Team has also actively undertaken social responsibility and strived to be a leader in the cause of sustainable development.
“Honor and responsibility coexist, and the certification standard is scientific and strict. It puts forward higher requirements for our future work – to abide by various standards, be strict with ourselves, and set an example to society. China has also solemnly made a commitment to aim for carbon neutrality by 2060. We will make unremitting efforts at Brilliant in Excellence, between China and the UK, to help achieve the goal of carbon neutrality.”
