Mercedes F1 Team Publishes Sustainability Report

The Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team has released a sustainability report, which highlights the team’s initiatives on and off the track to create a more inclusive, diverse and eco-friendly company.

The report revealed the organisation’s ambition to cut their CO2 emissions by 50% in 2022, while embedding environmental sustainability into every decision made and action taken.

The report also outlined the creation of a more diverse workforce as a core priority, which will be built through their Accelerate 25 programme and formalises their goal of at least 25% of new employees coming from under-represented groups.

Additionally, a review showed 38% of all new workers who joined the organisation in 2021 were from an under-represented group,  while the number of  female employees also rose from 12% to 15%.

Commenting on their sustainable goals, Mercedes team principal and CEO, Toto Wolff, said: “Motor racing is fuelled by passion.”

“We operate in the fastest, most dynamic sport in the world and we have a responsibility to use that global platform to be more than leaders; we want to be pioneers.

“Over the past few years, we have worked tirelessly to change and better understand the impact we have on the world.

“We’re fully committed to sustainable high-performance.

“This is the future for us all.

“Whether deploying our resources to drive technological advances that will help society address the environmental challenges that we face, or committing to increase the diversity of our workforce, and supporting those in need in our local communities, our passion isn’t just in the cars you see on track, it’s across everything we do.

“We are a team of problem solvers; and we’re setting ourselves ambitions on how to become more sustainable across all that we do.

“We are at the start of this journey but have committed to extremely challenging targets because we are all in on the race towards a sustainable tomorrow.

“I am very proud of our team for the achievements that we have made so far and the industry-leading strategies we have committed to in the years ahead.

“What happens on the track is inextricably linked to what happens in the world outside, and that drives the entire team to continually go faster and further,” he said.

The report comes after the F1 team announced a multi-million dollar investment into sustainable aviation fuel.
