Welcome to #RacingForTheClimate – a non-profit initiative which wants to contribute that motorsport remains relevant and accepted by the society while also respecting the the Global Goals, especially No. 13: combating the climate change.
>> We are promoting Global Goal No. 13: combating the climate change
>> We are sharing projects which help to reduce the carbon footprint of motorsport
>> We are developing ideas what motorsport can do to become more sustainable and even be a role model for other sports and events and mobility in general
>> We are organizing meetings and events to discuss and share our visions
>> We are promoting esports racing as a sustainable addition to real-world racing and a grassroot for young drivers
>> We are open to any technology which helps to reduce the carbon footprint
>> We are against bans and protests – we are supporting great ideas and innovation
>> We are committed to diversity
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including No. 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts. #RacingFortheClimate is supporting this goal.

We are a group of passionate people who are working in motorsport, mobility, clean energy and esports racing. We love motorsport. We collect ideas, discuss them and have regular meetings in the virtual and real world.
Motorsport has always been driving new technologies while also attracting millions of people all around our planet. Formula 1 is one of the most popular sports in the world which keeps growing and also attracting younger people.
On the other hand, cars and individual mobility are getting more and more a bad image for their impact on pollution and the climate crisis – including a ban of petrol engines in the European Community from 2035 onwards.
We definitely all need to act and reduce our carbon footprints. But we need to do this in a smart way.
While it is popular to condemn cars and racing with internal combustions engines, we should see the bigger picture.
The share in air pollution of some cars racing on race tracks is hardly measurable. Travel and spectators have a far bigger impact. And this is the case for all big events on our planet.
Motorsport should continue to be a driver for advanced technology – and also a role model for sustainable events. Electric cars are one way to achieve the targets. But we should be open to any other great technology that helps reducing our carbon footprint.
