McLaren takes environmental award

McLaren becomes the first winner of a the FIA Institute's Environmental Award for the Achievement of Excellence
McLaren has become the first winner of the FIA Institute's Environmental Award for the Achievement of Excellence.

The award was announced back in June last year, when teams were invited to sign up for an environmental accreditation scheme that enabled them to achieve high standards in environmental management.

Organisations that sign up are rated against three levels of environmental performance, so measuring their achievement and providing a benchmark against which to improve.

Having undergone a range of assessments, McLaren achieved the highest level possible having shown was described as 'a commitment to continual improvement and impressive environmental awareness throughout the entire organisation'.

“McLaren's award is an important step in the recognition by motor sport of the social responsibility our community must acknowledge if our championships are to remain in tune with the key environmental debates we are all a part of,” FIA president Jean Todt said. “The FIA and the FIA Institute are researching the environmental impact of motor sports across all our world championships.”

McLaren themselves were left delighted with the award.

“We're delighted to receive this Award for Excellence from the FIA Institute,” team principal Martin Whitmarsh said. “It's great that the sport is encouraging those within it to improve their environmental performance and we are thrilled to be the first to achieve the highest level.”
