What is Formula E doing?
Formula E is exceptionally committed to environmental and social sustainability. After all, the series was created with sustainability at its core and has built a fan base who is familiar with environmental and social issues, and wants to see real changes.
Formula E launched the GEN3 in its latest season, which is considered to be "the fastest, lightest, most powerful and efficient electric race car ever built." Using a LCA from beginning to end, the car was created to have as low carbon footprint as possible. Besides using 26% of natural rubber and recycled fibers in its tires, the GEN3 is the first formula car to use linen and recycled carbon fiber in bodywork construction.
Formula E is ahed the curve off of the track too. It has become a leader in sustainability in whole sport industry. For instance, the series was the only global sport present at COP27 in Egypt.

Formula E aims to build more inclusive, resilient, and diverse communities in the cities where they race. Its projects and activities are built with the goal of creating a positive social and economic impact within those communities.

Additionally, Formula E's legacy program in host cities has impacted the lives of 11,720 local children, and the lives of 696,000 children globally. The series has donated over € 500,000 to philanthropic causes. This year, it will host four Girls on Track workshop events: in Mexico City, Sao Paulo, Diriyah, and Jakarta.
