The People

A historic team's drive to modernize its operations

Re-entering Formula One with a celebrated heritage, Aston Martin Formula One® Team wanted to lead from the front with a forward-thinking approach to sustainability.

The team's return to the racetrack coincided with a renewed focus on sustainability and driving wider societal change.

There was also pressure from F1®  with strict sustainability initiatives in place, including the FIA's 2030 net-zero target.

The Challenge

Towards a sustainable era of racing

Aligning its sporting mission with its corporate responsibilities, Aston Martin Formula One® Team sought to achieve sustainability across its operations, while making progress on its ESG policies.

From the construction of its cars to the maintenance of its facilities, Aston Martin Formula One® Team wanted to comply with and exceed industry regulations on sustainability.

However, due to the extensive global transport needed to compete in the races, Aston Martin Formula One® Team would need to find a way to reduce energy consumption, lower GHG emissions and better optimize its resources if it were to operate as sustainably as possible.

The Solution

Accelerating progress on climate action

A robust ESG programme bringing together staff, partners and suppliers towards a common goal of making a positive societal impact.

Aston Martin Formula One® Team embraced certification to achieve key climate action milestones and embed sustainable practices. Certification in Environmental Management (ISO 14001) has helped them secure three-star accreditation to the FIA’s Environmental Accreditation Programme and improve management in Scope 3 emissions and logistics operations.

They are working towards further sustainability-linked standards in Energy Management (ISO 50001), Sustainable Events Management (ISO 20121) and Carbon Footprint Verification (ISO 14064-1).

Leading the way in lowering carbon

As an instantly recognizable brand in a global sport, Aston Martin Formula One® Team are driving positive climate action forward at impressive speed.
